373.196 Legislative findings.-
(1) It is the finding of the legislature that cooper-
ative efforts between municipalities, counties, water
management districts, and the Department of '[En-
vironmental Regulation] are mandatory in order to
meet the water needs of rapidly urbanizing areas in
a manner which will supply adequate and dependa-
ble supplies of water where needed without resulting
in adverse effects upon the areas from whence such
water is withdrawn. Such efforts should utilize all
practical means of obtaining water, including, but
not limited to, withdrawals of surface water and
ground water, recycling of waste water, and desalini-
zation, and will necessitate not only cooperation but
also well-coordinated activities. The purpose of this
act is to provide additional statutory authority for
such cooperative and coordinated efforts.
(2) Municipalities and counties are encouraged
to create regional water supply authorities as au-
thorized herein. It is further the intent that munici-
palities, counties, and regional water supply
authorities are to have the primary responsibility
for water supply, and water management districts
and their basin boards are to engage only in those
functions that are incidental to the exercise of their
flood control and water management powers.
(3) Nothing herein shall be construed to preclude
the various municipalities and counties from contin-
uing to operate existing water production and trans-
mission facilities or to enter into cooperative
agreements with other municipalities and counties
for the purpose of meeting their respective needs for
dependable and adequate supplies of water, provided
the obtaining of water through such operations shall
not be done in a manner which results in adverse
effects upon the areas from whence such water is
withdrawn.

373.1961 Water production.-In the perform-
ance of, and in conjunction with, its other powers
and duties, the governing board of a water manage-
ment district existing pursuant to chapter 373:
(1) May engage in planning to assist counties,
municipalities, and regional water supply authori-
ties in meeting the water supply needs of the rapidly
urbanizing areas within its district in such manner
as will give priority to reducing adverse environmen-
tal effects of improper or excessive withdrawals of
water from concentrated areas.


(2) Upon request of a county, municipality, or
regional water supply authority, shall assist such
counties and municipalities and water supply au-
thorities in meeting the water supply needs of the
rapidly urbanizing areas within its district in such
manner as will give priority to reducing adverse en-
vironmental effects of improper or excessive with-
drawals of water from concentrated areas.
(3) At the request of a county, municipality, or
regional water supply authority, may establish wa-
ter production and transmission facilities for the
purpose of supplying water to such counties, munici-
palities, and regional water supply authorities.
(4) Shall not engage in local distribution.
(5) Shall not deprive, directly or indirectly, any
county wherein water is withdrawn of the prior
right to the reasonable and beneficial use of water
which is required to supply adequately the reasona-
ble and beneficial needs of the county or any of the
inhabitants or property owners therein.
(6) May provide water to regional water supply
authorities, but may not provide water to counties
and municipalities which are located within the area
of such authority without the specific approval of the
authority or, in the event of the authority's disap-
proval, the approval of the Governor and Cabinet
sitting as '[the Land and Water Adjudicatory Com-
mission]. The district may supply water at rates and
upon terms mutually agreed to by such parties or, if
they do not agree, as set by the governing board and
specifically approved by the Governor and Cabinet
sitting as '[the Land and Water Adjudicatory Com-
mission].
(7) May acquire title to such interest as is neces-
sary in real property, by purchase, gift, devise, lease,
eminent domain, or otherwise, for water production
and transmission consistent with this section. How-
ever, the district shall not use any of the eminent
domain powers herein granted to acquire water and
water rights already devoted to reasonable and bene-
ficial use or any water production or transmission
facilities owned by any county, municipality, or re-
gional water supply authority.

Ch. 373







163.01, and upon the approval of the 'Governor and
Cabinet sitting as head of the Department of Natu-
ral Resources to insure that such agreement will be
in the public interest and complies with the intent
and purposes of this act, regional water supply au-
thorities may be created for the purpose of develop-
ing, storing, and supplying -water for county or
municipal purposes in such a manner as will give
priority to reducing adverse environmental effects of
excessive or improper withdrawals of water from
concentrated areas. In approving said agreement the
'Governor and Cabinet, sitting as head of the De-
partment of Natural Resources, shall consider, but
not be limited to, the following:
(a) '[Whether] the geographic territory of the
proposed authority is of sufficient size and character
to reduce the environmental effects of improper or
excessive withdrawals of water from concentrated
areas.
(b) The '[maximization of) economic develop-
ment of the water resources within the territory of
the proposed authority.
(c) The availability of a dependable and adequate
water supply.
(d) The ability of any proposed authority to de-
sign, construct, operate, and maintain water supply
facilities in the locations, and at the times necessary,
to insure that an adequate water supply will be
available to all citizens within the authority.
(e) The effect or impact of any proposed authori-
ty on any municipality, county, or existing authority
or authorities.
(f) The existing needs of the water users within
the area of the authority.
(2) In addition to other powers and duties agreed
upon, and notwithstanding the provisions of s.
163.01, such authority may-
(a) Upon approval ofthe electors residing in each
county or municipality within the territory to be
included in any authority, levy ad valorem taxes, not
to exceed one-half mill, pursuant to s. 9(b), Art. VII
of the State Constitution. No tax authorized by this
paragraph shall be levied in any county or munici-
pality without an affirmative vote of the electors
residing in such county or municipality.
(b) Acquire water and water rights; develop,
store, and transport water; provide, sell and deliver
water for county or municipal uses and purposes;
provide for the furnishing of such water and water
service upon terms and conditions and at rates
which will apportion to parties and nonparties an
equitable share of the capital cost and operating ex-
pense of the authority's work to the purchaser.
(c) Not engage in local distribution.
(d) Exercise the power of eminent domain in the
manner provided by law for the condemnation of
private property for public use to acquire title to
such interest in real property as is necessary to the
exercise of the powers herein granted, except water
and water rights already devoted to reasonable and
beneficial use or any water production or transmis-
sion facilities owned by any county or municipality.
(e) Issue revenue bonds in the manner prescribed
by the Revenue Bond Act of 1953, as amended, part
1, chapter 159, to be payable solely from funds de-
rived from the sale of water by the authority to any
county or municipality. Such bonds may be addition-
ally secured by the full faith and credit of any county
or municipality, as provided by s. 159.16 or by a
pledge of excise taxes, as provided by s. 159.19. For
the purpose of issuing revenue bonds, an authority
shall be considered a "unit" as defined in s. 159.02(2)
.and as that term is used in the Revenue Bond Act of
1953, as amended. Such bonds may be issued to fi-
nance the cost of acquiring properties and facilities


for the production and transmission of water by the
authority to any county or municipality, which cost
shall include the acquisition of real property and
easements therein for such purposes. Such bonds
may be in the form of refunding bonds to take up any
outstanding bonds of the authority or of any county
or municipality where such outstanding bonds are
secured by properties and facilities for production
and transmission of water, which properties and fa-
cilities are being acquired by the authority. Refund-
ing bonds may be issued to take up and refund all
outstanding bonds of said authority that are subject
to call and termination, and all bonds of said author-
ity that are not subject to call or redemption, when
the surrender of said bonds can be procured from the
holder thereof at prices satisfactory to the authority.
Such refunding bonds may be issued at any time
when, in the judgment of the authority, it will be to
the best interest of the authority financially or eco-
nomically by securing a lower rate of interest on said
bonds or by extending the time of maturity of said
bonds or, for any other reason, in the judgment of the
authority, advantageous to said authority.
(f) Sue and be sued in its own name.
(g) Borrow money and incur indebtedness and
issue bonds or other evidence of such indebtedness.
(h) Join with one or more other public corpora-
tions for the purpose of carrying out any of its pow-
ers and for that purpose to contract with such other
public corporation or corporations for the purpose of
financing such acquisitions, construction, and opera-
tions. Such contracts may provide for contributions
to be made by each party thereto, for the division
and apportionment of the expenses of such acquisi-
tions and operations, and for the division and appor-
tionment of the benefits, services, and products
therefrom. Such contract may contain such other
and further covenants and agreements as may be
necessary and convenient to accomplish the pur-
poses hereof.
(3) When it is found to be in the public interest,
for the public convenience and welfare, for a public
benefit, and necessary for carrying out the purpose
of any regional water supply authority, any state
agency, county, drainage or water management dis-
trict existing pursuant to chapter 298, water man-
agement district existing pursuant to chapter 373,
municipality, governmental agency, or public corpo-
ration in this state holding title to any interest in
land is hereby authorized, in its discretion, to convey
the title to or dedicate land, title to which is in such
entity, including tax reverted land, or to grant use-
rights therein, to any regional water supply authori-
ty created pursuant to this section. Land granted or
conveyed to such authority shall be for the public
purposes of such authority and may be made subject
to the condition that in the event said land is not so
used, or if used and subsequently its use for said
purpose is abandoned, the interest granted shall
cease as to such authority and shall automatically
revert to the granting entity.
(4) Each county or municipality which is a party
to an agreement pursuant to subsection (1) shall
have a preferential right to purchase water from the
regional water supply authority for use by such
county or municipality.
(5) In carrying out the provisions of this section,
any county wherein water is withdrawn by the au-
thority shall not be deprived, directly or indirectly,
of the prior right to the reasonable and beneficial use
of water which is required adequately to supply the
reasonable and beneficial needs of the county or any
of the inhabitants or property owners therein. .
(6) Upon a resolution adopted by the governing
body of any county or municipality, the authority

REGIONAL WATER SUPPLY








A REGIONAL APPROACH TO PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY

.HISTORICALLY, THE WATER PROBLEMS OF THE TAMPA BAY REGION,
WHICH INCLUDES PASCO, HILLSBOROUGH AND PINELLAS COUNTIES, DATE
FROM THE LATE 1920'S WHEN THE WATER SYSTEMS OF BOTH TAMPA AND
ST. PETERSBURG EXPERIENCED CONTAMINATING SALT WATER INTRUSION.
AS A RESULT, TAMPA EXPANDED ITS SURFACE WATER SYSTEM AND ST.
PETERSBURG DRILLED WELLS SOME DISTANCE TO THE NORTH, IN THE
COSME ODESSA AREA OF NORTHWEST HILLSBOROUGH COUNTY. SUBSEQUENTLY,
THE HILLSBOROUGH RIVER, WHICH SUPPLIES THE CITY OF TAMPA, AND WELL-
FIELDS IN NORTHERN PINELLAS, HILLSBOROUGH AND SOUTHERN PASCO
COUNTIES, WHICH TOGETHER COMPRISE THE MAJOR REGIONAL WATER SOURCES.
HAVE UNDERGONE CONSIDERABLE DEVELOPMENT.

AS WATER REQUIREMENTS OF THE RAPIDLY GROWING TAMPA BAY
REGION INCREASED, CONTROVERSY OVER OWNERSHIP AND CONTROL OF WATER
SOURCES ALSO GREW. THE IMPACT OF EXCESSIVE WATER WITHDRAWAL ON
THE AQUIFER, POSSIBLE SALT WATER INTRUSION AND CHANGES IN WATER
TABLE AND SURFACE WATER LEVELS BECAME MATTERS OF INCREASING CONCERN.
THE RESULT WAS COSTLY AND DIVISIVE COMPETITION AMONG THE AFFECTED
GOVERNMENTAL BODIES THE SO-CALLED "WATER WARS" FOR RIGHTS
TO REMAINING UNDEVELOPED WATER SOURCES. DESPITE FLORIDA'S WEALTH
OF WATER RESOURCES, THERE WERE INDICATIONS THAT THE PUBLIC WELFARE
MIGHT BE ADVERSELY AFFECTED AND CONTINUED ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT MIGHT
BE SEVERELY CONSTRAINED BY INSUFFICIENT QUANTITIES OF QUALITY WATER.






A REGIONAL APPROACH TO-PUBLIC WATER SUPPLY -2-

NEARBY SOURCES OF POTABLE WATER HAD BEEN FULLY DEVELOPED,
WATER-NOW HAD TO BE TRANSPORTED FROM GREATER DISTANCES AND/OR
OBTAINED THROUGH PURIFICATION OF LOW QUALITY WATER. FURTHER-
MORE, NEW REGULATIONS REQUIRED THAT ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT OF WATER
WITHDRAWAL BE MINIMIZED AND THAT WATER QUALITY BE IMPROVED TO
MEET THE STANDARDS OF THE NATIONAL SAFE DRINKING WATER ACT. EACH
OF THESE FACTORS INCREASED THE PRICE OF WATER, THOUGH AMPLE SUPPLIES
TO MEET PEOPLE'S NEEDS AT REASONABLE COST WERE STILL AVAILABLE WITH
PROPERLY COORDINATED PLANNING AND EXECUTION.

GRADUALLY, THERE AROSE AN AWARENESS OF THE REGIONAL
CHARACTER OF THE WATER SUPPLY PROBLEMS AND THAT THEY WERE NOT

YEARS, ARE PRORATED AMONG THE THREE COUNTIES ACCORDING TO THEIR
TAX BASES. THE ANNUAL CONTRIBUTION OF ANY COUNTY IS LIMITED TO
A MAXIMUM OF $200,000 PER YEAR DURING THIS PERIOD.

THE SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT HAS AGREED
TO ASSIST THE AUTHORITY IN FUNDING SEVERAL CRITICAL ENGINEERING
AND HYDROLOGIC INVESTIGATIONS AND THE LEGISLATURE, IN 1975,
PROVIDED THAT COMMENCING IN FISCAL YEAR 1978, MILLAGE SUPPORT
FROM THE WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT WOULD BE FORTHCOMING. ULTIMATELY,
THE AUTHORITY WILL BE FINANCED BY REVENUE FROM WATER SALES.

BUDGETS

THE AUTHORITY APPROVED FOR ITS FIRST YEAR (FY '75) A
BUDGET OF $228,960, USED TO ACQUIRE AN OFFICE, STAFF, SUPPLIES AND
EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO COMMENCE OPERATION. THE BUDGET FOR THE.1976
FISCAL YEAR, STARTING OCTOBER 1, 1975 IS $476,962, WHICH INCLUDES
A CARRYOVER OF $171,066 FROM FY '75. THE FY '76 CONTRIBUTIONS ARE
APPORTIONED AS FOLLOWS: PINELLAS COUNTY, 56 PERCENT; HILLSBOROUGH
COUNTY, 35.5 PERCENT; AND PASCO COUNTY, 8.5 PERCENT.

THE FY 1977 WAS APPROVED IN AUGUST 1976. IT ENVISIONS THE
COMPLETION OF THE SOURCE FEASIBILITY STUDIES, THE COMMENCEMENT OF
PUMP TESTS, DETAILED INVESTIGATIONS AT SELECTED SITES, BEGINNING
NEGOTIATIONS FOR ACQUISITION OF ADDITIONAL EXISTING WATER SUPPLY
FACILITIES AND THE POSSIBLE ACQUISITION OF OPTIONS FOR WELLFIELD SITES.

ORGANIZATION AND PLANNING

UPON ORGANIZING IN NOVEMBER 1974, THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
APPOINTED PICKENS C. TALLEY, II, THE DIRECTOR OF THE PINELLAS
COUNTY WATER SYSTEM, AS TEMPORARY ADMINISTRATOR, AND NAMED A
COMMITTEE TO SEEK CANDIDATES FOR GENERAL MANAGER. THE BOARD
ALSO SOUGHT THE ASSISTANCE OF AN ATTORNEY. THESE KEY POSITIONS
WERE LATER FILLED THROUGH THE SELECTION OF COLONEL RICHARD J.
HESSE, U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, RETIRED, AS FIRST GENERAL
MANAGER AND FORMER STATE SENATOR LOUIS DE LA PARTE, JR., AS THE
ATTORNEY.

UPON HIRING OF THE GENERAL MANAGER AND ATTORNEY, AND THE
ADDITION OF OTHER STAFF IN LATE 1975, ATTENTION FOCUSED ON THE
PARTIALLY COMPLETED REGIONAL FACILITIES BEING JOINTLY DEVELOPED BY
ST. PETERSBURG, PASCO AND PINELLAS COUNTIES IN THE CYPRESS CREEK
AREA OF CENTRAL PASCO COUNTY. THESE FACILITIES COMPRISE A WELL
FIELD BEING DEVELOPED BY ST. PETERSBURG, A REGIONAL PUMPING STATION
BEING CONSTRUCTED BY PINELLAS COUNTY AND A JOINTLY OWNED (PINELLAS
COUNTY-ST. PETERSBURG) 84-INCH TRANSMISSION LINE LEADING FROM THE
WELL FIELDS AT CYPRESS CREEK TO THEIR WATER PROCESSING PLANTS.

IN FISCAL YEAR 1976, THE AUTHORITY EXPANDED ITS ROLE IN
SEVERAL KEY AREAS. ACTIVITIES WERE AIMED AT MEETING THE ULTIMATE
MISSION OF PROVIDING WHOLESALE WATER ECONOMICALLY FOR LOCAL DISTRI-
BUTION VIA EXISTING CITY AND COUNTY FACILITIES. SEVERAL STUDIES
WERE INITIATED, WITH MOST OF THE WORK PERFORMED BY COMPETITIVELY
SELECTED CONSULTANTS. THE IMMEDIATE OBJECTIVE WAS TO DETERMINE
1980-85 WATER REQUIREMENTS AND POTENTIAL ALTERNATIVES TO MEET
THESE NEEDS. FURTHER OBJECTIVES ARE TO INVESTIGATE REGIONAL WATER
SUPPLY SOURCES THROUGH THE YEAR 2020. THESE STUDIES WILL COST A

MODEST $150,000 IN THE FIRST YEAR, ALL ALTERNATIVES, INCLUDING
SURFACE AND GROUND WATER SOURCES, DESALINATION AND WATER RECLAMATION
WILL BE EXPLORED. ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT WILL, OF COURSE, BE CON-
SIDERED. THESE STUDIES WILL HELP THE AUTHORITY DEFINE AND MEET
CITIZEN WATER NEEDS WITHIN THE REGION.
THE KNOWLEDGE AND EXPERTISE OF CITY AND COUNTY PERSONNEL, THE
U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS, THE U.S. GEOLOGICAL SURVEY AND THE
SOUTHWEST FLORIDA WATER MANAGEMENT DISTRICT WILL BE DRAWN UPON
THROUGHOUT THESE STUDIES TO TAKE ADVANTAGE OF RELATED PRIOR AND
CONCURRENT WORK, AND TO ASSURE CLOSE AND CONTINUING PROGRAM
COORDINATION.
THE FUTURE
IN FISCAL YEAR 1977, THE EFFORTS TO ACQUIRE EXISTING FACILITIES
WILL CONTINUE. AGREEMENTS HAVE BEEN REACHED FOR THE AUTHORITY TO
ASSUME MANAGEMENT RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE CYPRESS CREEK AND RELATED
FACILITIES ON 1 JANUARY 1977. THE AUTHORITY IS SEEKING U.S. DEPART-
MENT OF COMMERCE FUNDS UNDER A FEDERAL GRANT PROGRAM TO CONNECT THE
CYPRESS CREEK WELL FIELD TO THE WATER SHORT WEST PASCO AREA VIA A
MAJOR WATER TRANSMISSION LINE. IT IS ANTICIPATED THAT 1977 WILL SEE
AN INCREASING INVOLVEMENT IN THE OBSERVATION AND MONITORING OF
HYDROLOGIC AND ECOLOGIC IMPACTS OF WATER PRODUCTION FACILITIES, SO
AS TO ENABLE THE AUTHORITY TO DISCHARGE ITS LEGISLATIVE MANDATE OF
"DEVELOPING, STORING AND SUPPLYING WATER FOR COUNTY AND MUNICIPAL
PURPOSE IN SUCH A MANNER AS WILL GIVE PRIORITY TO REDUCING ADVERSE
ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACTS".

THE QUALITY OF.LIFE AND ECONOMIC WELL BEING OF THE PEOPLE
OF-THIS REGION ARE GREATLY DEPENDENT UPON THE AVAILABILITY OF
QUALITY WATER IN ADEQUATE QUANTITIES. AGGRESSIVE, COORDINATED
PLANNING AND EXECUTION THROUGH REGIONAL COOPERATION ARE ESSENTIAL
TO SUPPLY THOSE NEEDS. THE ALTERNATIVE IS DIVISIVE AND EXPENSIVE
COMPETITION FOR A THREATENED RESOURCE, BUILDING MORATORIUMS, WATER
USE RESTRICTIONS. ENVIRONMENTAL DEGRADATION AND ECONOMIC STAGNATION.
A STRONG BEGINNING HAS BEEN MADE TOWARD SOLUTION OF THESE PROBLEMS
IN THE TRI-COUNTY REGION. THE PATTERN ESTABLISHED BY THE PIONEERING
EFFORTS OF WCRWSA MAY SERVE AS AN EXAMPLE FOR OTHER REGIONS FACING
WATER SUPPLY PROBLEMS AND MAY BE USEFUL IN THIS REGION AS A PROTO-
TYPE ORGANIZATION TO ADDRESS OTHER AREAWIDE COMMON SERVICE PROBLEMS.

and.water-demand projections has been exhaustively coordinated
with staffs of member jurisdictions. The study can now progress
to conclusion of the first phase (1980-85). Delays of a few
months have been encountered because of the time consumed in
coordination and acquisition of pertinent data; the difficulty
in reconciling population projections; the scarsity of data in
some member governments; delays in securing related study reports;
and a somewhat optimistic judgment of the time required to do
such a thorough analysis of a complex problem the first time
that a study of such broad scope, including a careful examination
of potential impacts, has been attempted. Thus there should be
adequate time remaining to make the necessary decisions and
develop the desired projects in order to have additional supplies
on line by the end of 1980.

In early calendar year 1976, the Authority undertook the
development of a draft DRI type document for the Cypress Creek
Well Field. Leggette, Brashears & Graham, consultant hydrolo-
gists, (thru the City of St. Petersburg) and Ecolmpact, Inc.
assisted the in-house staff in developing specific information
for the draft document. Originally estimated to cost about
$90,000, the draft was completed in less than 3 months at a cost
of under $19,000. Subsequent court decisions obviated the need
to publish the DRI in final form.

Ecolmpact, Inc. was also engaged to undertake the monitoring
of emergency pumping from the Cypress Creek Well Field commencing
on May 24, 1976. The purpose was to supplement background and
data base during the DRI preparation and to observe the impact of
a 10 mgd emergency water withdrawal in and outside the well field.
A proposal to continue biologic monitoring during subsequent
pumping was part of a request for budget assistance from SWFWMD.
Negotiations and discussions with SWFWMD resulted in their incor-
porating our proposed biologic monitoring efforts into a larger
study already planned by SWFWMD. That study is progressing.

In March, the Authority asked SWFWMD to assist in the funding
for consultants to perform several major studies and engineering
and hydrologic investigations. This culminated in an agreement
ratified in September, 1976, which will provide for over $100,000
in supporting funds during FY 1976 and over $300,000 in Fiscal
Year 1977. The Legislature, meanwhile, provided that, commencing
in FY 1978, .05 millage would be available to the Authority from
the 3-County tax base, if requested from SWFWMD.

Thus the funds to prosecute the preliminary studies and
engineering, hydrologic and environmental investigations appear
to be available. The major capital costs for the construction
of new facilities must be obtained from other sources. Ultimately,

of course, it is intended that water revenues will pay for
operating, maintenance and administrative costs of the Authority
as well as the debt service for capital investments.

One potential source of funds is the Federal Public Works
Employment Act of 1976 which provides for a large outlay of
Federal funds to undertake public works design and construction
in areas of high unemployment. The Board engaged Watson & Co.
to undertake preliminary engineering and design, and assist the
staff in the preparation of a grant application to the Economic
Development Administration, U.S. Department of Commerce. The
grant sought is for the purpose of designing and constructing a
transmission main and a storage and booster station to transport
water to the perenially water-short West Pasco region from the
regional transmission mains leading from the Cypress Creek Well
Field. If this grant is forthcoming it is envisioned that a
major supply line to West Pasco will be available in 1978. The
total cost is estimated not to exceed 5 million dollars and
depends on the ultimate sizing and routing of transmission mains
and location and sizing of storage tanks. The Authority received
notification of denial on 30 December 1976. The pursuit of other
means of funding this essential project may thus become essential.

A substantial effort during the year was devoted to the
accumulation and analysis of data regarding the Cypress Creek
Well Field and associated facilities. The Board Attorney directed
the negotiations for the acquisition with continuous technical
input from the staff. The negotiations represented one of the
major staff efforts during 1976.

The fiscal year started with the General Manager and Executive
Secretary as the only staff on board. During the fiscal year the
Authority added Walter Walker as the Director of Engineering and
Planning; Don Dye, Director of Operations; and John Miller, staff
hydrogeologist. In addition to the Executive Secretary, one full
time and one part time clerk typist and a draftsman-illustrator
were employed. Several Comprehensive Employment and Training Act
personnel were employed for short periods under Federal contracts
and funding.

During the year the office and staff have become fully
operational. An excellent library has been developed and the
majority of base data pertinent to our mission has been acquired.

In December members of the Board again expressed the desire
to pursue negotiations to acquire the Starkey Well Field as well
as other available water production facilities in the 3-county
area.

The 1977 budget was approved in August, 1976. It envisions
the completion of the source feasibility studies, the commencement
of pump test(s) and detailed investigations at selected sites,
the commencement of negotiations for acquisition of additional
existing water supply facilities and the possible acquisition of
options for well field sites. Thus the planning and engineering
for future water sources continues on an aggressive basis. With
the acquisition of the Cypress Creek Well Field and the Regional
Transmission Mains, the first major step toward a viable opera-
tional Authority has been achieved.

1977 REPORT



During year 1977, substantial progress was made by the
Authority in several programs and projects most of which were
included in the FY 1976 and FY 1977 budgets.

1. Phase II, Needs and Sources Study. The 1985 and beyond portion
of this consultant study, which extends the planning horizon through
the year 2020, is essentially complete. The final draft has been
distributed to our member governments and other interested agencies.
Comments have been received on the draft from the majority of these
reviewers and the balance are expected shortly. Publication of the
final report is expected in February or March 1978. This date has
been moved back from October 1977 to December 1977 and finally to
March 1978, primarily to allow the consultant an opportunity to
utilize the results of other recently completed studies and to
appraise the impacts on their projections for the future and the
Authority.

2. Operation of Cypress Creek. The long-term pumping tests ordered
by SWFWMD on January 14, 1976 and as modified on April 7 and July 7,
1976 proceeded approximately on schedule. Pumping rates were approx-
imately 10 mgd from about April 1976 to April 7, 1977, increased to
20 mgd through July 19, 1977 and then decreased to 10 mgd for about
90 days. The test was originally to terminate on or about October
17, 1977. This date has been extended several times and now is to
terminate on March 1, 1978 concurrent with the issuance of a 30 mgd
(both average and peak day production) Consumptive Use Permit. The
issuance of this permit is contingent on several factors, the primary
consideration is that during a 30 mgd "stress" test from January 10
through February 10, 1978, there be no "unexpected adverse" results.
This test was successfully completed on schedule and no "unexpected
adverse" results occurred.
3. Acquisition of Cross Bar Ranch Well Field. A draft proposal
prepared by the Authority staff in March 1977, which included transfer
of well field development rights and a "take or pay" purchase agreement
for the water produced was submitted to the Board on April 20, 1977.
This draft was deemed too comprehensive and the Board Attorney was
directed to draw a simple agreement that "speaks exclusively to the
matter of the right that we have to the water in Norris, without all
the accessories that accompany". Such an agreement was negotiated
by the attorneys and staff, passed by the Pinellas County Commission
on November 8, 1977 and ratified by our Board on November 16, 1977.
This agreement contains a schedule of dates for completion of various
steps in the development of the well field by the Authority, which
will require vigorous and continued effort. A staff effort has been
initiated to obtain water purchase agreements. The first step was
the submission by the Authority of a draft agreement to the Pinellas
County staff and we are now awaiting their comments, changes, additions,
etc. When this process has moved further along, a similar effort is
planned with other members, in particular St. Petersburg and Pasco
County.







4. Communications System. Between FY 1978 Budget approval on
July 27, 1977 and October 24, 1977 background information was
being obtained for proposed equipment, VHF frequencies, transmission
routes and site descriptive data in conjunction with submission
of a Request for Frequency Coordination. This request was sub-
mitted on October 24, 1977 to Mr. Vincent Quelle, Frequency
Coordinator, Utilities Telecommunications Council, Power Radio
Service. Upon review by Mr. Quelle and a meeting with a member
of the WCRWSA Staff, the application was resubmitted for a UHF
frequency assignment since the VHF spectrum in this area is
extremely congested. A pair of UHF frequencies were found to be
suitable which should be free of interference from other transmissions.
Upon receipt of an approved application, the staff will prepare a
letter of eligibility to accompany FCC Form 400 to be forwarded
to the FCC in Washington, D.C. for the purpose of obtaining final
approval and frequency assignment. Equipment selection and purchase
will be processed after FCC verification of the requested frequencies.

5. Evapotranspiration Salvage from Well Fields Study by USF.
A contract was entered into with USF on September 29, 1977 which
contains a scope of work divided into three stages. Stage I is
a data gathering process from a review of the literature and visits
to active and proposed well fields. This stage is essentially
completed. Stage II is a development of new options, ideas and
concepts that have not yet been considered. This stage is in
progress. Stage III is the preparation of a final report and will
contain definite proposals for a much larger effort and define the
concept to be tested, the required equipment, conditions to be
studied, multi-disciplinary personnel needs, costs, time and study
sites. The contract is to be completed by September 30, 1978.

6. Supply Alternatives, N.W. Hillsborough County. The Phase I
Needs and Sources Study listed the supply alternatives for this
area. Preliminary financial feasibility analysis by Authority staff
indicated a modified program of implementation which was adopted
by the consultant in the Phase II study.

In accordance with Board suggestions, made at the July 1977
Board meeting, the staff of both the Authority and the Hillsborough
Utilities Department worked on a draft of a supply contract. A
proposed contract was approved at our November 16, 1977 Board
Meeting and was forwarded via their attorney to the Hillsborough
County Commission for their ratification, amendments, additions, etc.
This proposed agreement contains three basic elements.

a. An engineering study funded by the Authority to
determine the most cost effective and dependable
solution to provide for the increasing water
requirements in the northwestern portion of
Hillsborough County. It does not involve any
other portion of the county only that portion
bounded on the west by Pinellas County, on the
north by Pasco County and on the east and south
by the City of Tampa water service area and
Tampa Bay.


-2-







b. A commitment by the Authority to utilize the
results of this study and to provide the required
volumes of water to Hillsborough to provide for
the projected needs of the people in Northwestern
Hillsborough County beginning in the calendar
year 1980. To provide for the possibility that
the Authority may experience some difficulty in
having a facility in operation by 1980, provision
has been made for Hillsborough to proceed, to the
extent that may prove feasible by the above study
and Hillsborough's own study, with the first phase
of development of the Sheldon Road Well Field.

c. A commitment by Hillsborough County to purchase
certain minimum volumes of water from the Authority
starting in 1980, to look first to the Authority
for future water needed to serve the northwestern
portion of the county, and to not compete with the
Authority in such development. To provide for the
possibility that the Authority may be unwilling or
unable to provide the new or additional service,
Hillsborough is effectively released from later
commitment and would be free to proceed on its own.

While awaiting comments or action from Hillsborough on this
project, we are in communication at the staff level, attempting to
further refine several clauses in the document.

7. Environmental Assessment and Monitoring at Cross Bar Ranch
Well Field. The consultant was given notice to proceed on
June 15, 1977 and has since gathered the majority of the background
data in accordance with this monitoring program. The program was
concurred in by SWFWMD and advised of by letter dated August 18,
1977 that; "The study will provide the proper information for the
District to make an informed decision concerning the development
of the well field and its impact".

8. Hydrological Monitoring at Cross Bar Ranch Well Field. The
consultant started this program on April 4, 1977 under the direction
and expense of Pinellas County. The program plan was a joint effort
of the County and the Authority and the responsibility for its
execution moved to the Authority on December 1, 1977 after ratification
of the agreement with Pinellas on November 16, 1977 for the Authority
to develop the well field facilities. The program was developed
to include collection of data which SWFWMD indicated by letter dated
March 18, 1977 would provide the needed information to support the
consumptive use permit application. The various facets of the work
are proceeding on or ahead of schedule.

9. Starkey Well Field Acquisition. The Staff received concurrence
in early December 1977 from the Board Attorney to meet with New Port
Richey Staff members on December 14, 1977. The purpose was to resume
communications and to discuss various aspects of the proposed well
field acquisition. Nine items of interest to New Port Richey were
discussed (see memorandum to Louis de la Parte, dated December 15,
1977), and the Staff agreed to furnish New Port Richey some concepts
for management of the well field as well as a rate determination


-3-







study and formula. New Port Richey requested that the cost
information used in the rate studies come from their consultant,
Black, Crow and Eidsness, Inc. Black, Crow and Eidsness supplied
these figures January 11, 1978.

10.- Coordination with SWFWMD Ecologic Program, Cypress Creek
Well Field. The primary work on this program, which was in
the approved FY 1978 budget, was to be accomplished by a new
staff employee, an Ecological Specialist. Recruitment and hiring
for this position has not yet been authorized. However, with the
release by SWFWMD of draft (received October 27, 1977) and a final
draft (received December 13, 1977) the urgency of the project was
greatly accelerated, resulting in a major effort by the Attorney,
his staff and the employment of several consultants. Review by
the consultants of the drafts is completed and their comments were
forwarded to SWFWMD for consideration prior to publication of the
final document. This coordination effort is continuing through
the use of consultants during a 30 mgd pump test now in progress
and involves water level monitoring, in addition to the ecological
considerations. (See the item above on Operation of Cypress Creek.)

11. pH Adjustment Facility at Cypress Creek Pumping Station. Upon
Board approval of the Cypress Creek Budget which contained a capital
item expenditure for installation of a NaOH (Sodium Hydroxide)
Injection System at Cypress Creek, design drawings and an engineering
report were prepared. These were submitted to DER for approval to
modify the treatment capability and existing system at Cypress Creek.
DER approval was obtained on November 9, 1977. To date, some material
has been purchased and quotes have been obtained on fabrication of
the solution holding tank. Orders for all long-term materials and
supplies should be completed by Janaury 31, 1978. Completion is
expected by Spring, 1978.

12. Engineering Analysis and Design Cross Bar Ranch Well Field.
Staff was directed by the Board on March 16, 1977 to initiate
procurement for ecologic, hydrologic and engineering consultants.
In accordance with our rules for "Procedures for Contracting for
Professional Services", public announcements were made, interviews
held. The ecologic consultant was given notice to proceed on
June 15, 1977 (see item 7 above) and the hydrologic consultant was
given notice to proceed on December 1, 1977 (see item 8 above). The
three engineering consultants were scheduled to make a presentation
but were not heard at the July 27, 1977 Board meeting because the
property had not yet been acquired by the Authority. At the
August 17, 1977 meeting, staff was directed to readvertise for an
engineering consultant. The process was repeated and a new "short
list" of four consultants, which contained two of the previous 3,
resulted. The developmental rights for a well field were acquired
from Pinellas County by an agreement which was concluded on
November 16, 1977. The new "short list" of four consultants plus
the remaining consultant from the original short list was
recommended in September. These consultants made their presenta-
tions to the Board at their meeting of January 25, 1978 and were
ranked for order of negotiation. A contract was negotiated with
Camp, Dresser and McKee, the contract presented to the Board at
their February 15 meeting. After review and approval by each member,
the contract was signed by the Chairman on February 24, 1978, and
the Engineer Consultant began work.

1978 REPORT



The year 1978 has been a time of expanded operations and
revenues.

The Cypress Creek water production in 1978 has increased to
8,180,000,000 gallons from the 1977 level of 3,822,247 gallons.
The water cost to produce and transport the water to the
St. Petersburg and Pinellas County systems is projected for
FY 1979 at 29.3/1000 gallons and is broken down as follows:
operations at 10.5/1000 gal., administration at .7/1000 gal.,
debt service at 17.9/1000 gal. and capital improvements at
.24/1000 gal.

The areas of major change and accomplishments are reported
below.

1. Board Representation: Mayor Corinne Freeman of St. Petersburg
replaced Commissioner Charles Rainey of Pinellas County as
Board Chairman. Commissioner Fran Davin of Hillsborough County
was elected Vice-Chairman. The other members on the Board
were Commissioner Curtis Law of Pasco County, Commissioner
Jeanne Malchon of Pinellas County and Dale Twachtman, (Public
Works Director) of Tampa.

2. Management Personnel: Gene Heath, the new General Manager
came on board in June 1978. Mr. Heath's experience in water
supply has been in the areas of water quality control,
engineering, operations and administration.

Charles Palmer, Jr., Water Resource Engineer, joined the
Authority in June 1978. Mr. Palmer oversees the testing-
monitoring programs of existing and future water supply
projects.

3. Phase II Needs and Sources Study for the planning horizon
1980-2020 was published and released in March 1978. An
Executive Summary and a Subject Index were prepared by
Authority Staff to assist in the utilization of this
comprehensive study.







4. Cypress Creek Wellfield: A 30 mgd CUP was granted in March,
1978 conditioned on testing provisions. Three test periods
with production to 30 mgd were conducted during the year:
January 10-February.10, April 18-June 27 and August 1-December
31. In each case the test period data has confirmed earlier
-findings in that neither "significant anomalous events" nor
"unanticipated events" have occurred. The latest test period
was especially important as it was conducted during a severe
fall drought.

5. Cross Bar Ranch Wellfield: In October 1978 the SWFWMD took
action on our CUP application of 30 mgd average/45 mgd maximum.
A CUP for 15 mgd average/20 mgd maximum with an expiration
date of October 1984 was granted by SWFWMD. The CUP quantity
granted was to allow a first phase development of the wellfield
to meet the 1980 projected needs in Pinellas and Pasco counties.
In November 1978 Pasco County joined on-going negotiations
between the Authority and Pinellas County concerning a Cross
Bar water sales contract. These contracts are needed to
provide a basis for the Authority's Bond Validation. The water
sales contract with Pasco County is to include an interconnect
pipeline between the Cypress Creek facilities and the west
coast of Pasco County. While engineering and hydrogeological
efforts have proceeded, the Cross Bar Project schedule has been
impacted as a result of the Authority and the Counties not yet
reaching a final accord on the water sales contracts. It is
now questionable that the April 1980 production target will be
met.

6. Budgetary, FY 1979: A Fund for Renewal and Replacement was
created to cover unforeseen maintenance expenses on Authority
owned facilities. As of January 1, 1979 the Authority is
responsible for the debt service on the 27.4 million dollar
Cypress Creek Facility.

A fund for future water supply and facility development was
created to allow for front-end study and planning costs.
These funds were set aside to meet expenses normally incurred
prior to project bond monies becoming available.

The year 1979 will be a pivotal year for the Authority as we
endeavor to supply the water needs of our citizens through the
support and cooperation of our members. The focus will be on
bringing the 12 million dollar Cross Bar Project to fruition.

1979 REPORT



The year 1979 has been a year of rapid progress. The areas of major
change and accomplishments are reported as follows:

1) Financial Position The Cypress Creek water production in 1979 has
increased to 10,954,000,000 gallons from the 1978 level of
8,180,000,000 gallons. The water cost to produce and transport the
water to the St. Petersburg and Pinellas County water systems is
projected for FY 1980 at 28t/1000 gallons and 30.64/1000 gallons
respectively. This rate compares to an adjusted FY 1979 rate of
26.6t/1000 gallons and 29.54/1000 gallons respectively.

The Authority's assets increased from the $1,768,000 of FY 1977
to $50,348,000 in FY 1979. The increase resulted from the purchase
of the Cypress Creek facilities and the sale of the Cross Bar Project
Revenue Bonds. The FY 1979 operating revenues were $3,129,000.

2) Board Representation Commissioner Fran Davin of Hillsborough County
replaced Mayor Corinne Freeman of St. Petersburg as Board Chairman.
Commissioner Mike Olson of Pasco County was elected Vice-Chairman.
The other members of the Board at years end were Mayor Freeman of
St. Petersburg, Commissioner Charles Rainey of Pinellas County and
Dale Twachtmann, Public Works Director of Tampa.

3) Management Personnel Harold Aiken joined the Authority as Director
of Engineering and Planning in November 1979. Mr. Aiken's experience
has been in utility engineering and regulation as well as water
resource regulation.

James Miller was promoted the Chief Water Plant Operator at
Cypress Creek. Mr. Miller previously held the position of Assistant
Chief Water Plant Operator. David Henderson was promoted from Water
Plant Operator II to Assistant Chief Water Plant Operator.

4) Cross Bar Ranch Wellfield The Authority and Pinellas County signed
a Water Sales Agreement and Interim Finance Agreement in April 1979.
The Water Sales Agreement was a "take or pay" Agreement which served
as security for the Cross Bar Capital Improvement Revenue Bonds.






The Authority sold both Serial and Term Bonds. Serial Bonds
were rated A by Moody's and A+ by Standard and Poor's. The MBIA
Insured Term Bonds were rated A by Moody's and AAA by Standard and
Poor's. The bonds, in the amount of $18.2 million were sold in
August to an underwriting group at an interest rate of 6.35%. Cross
Bar's first phase (seven wells with a capacity of 20 mgd) construction
-contracts of $10.6 million were approved in April and May with a
beneficial occupancy date of June 1980. At the end of December 1979 -
construction was on schedule. It is now estimated that total construc-
tion costs to complete the first and second stages of the Cross Bar
project will be $13,000,000. The water rate to our customers for this
water in 1981 is anticipated to be 50t/1000 gallons and then decreasing
to 43t/1000 gallons by 1986.

A Consumptive Use Permit application for 30 average/45 maximum mgd
was filed with Southwest Florida Water Management District in August.
All the additional investigations called for in the original permit were
completed with positive results in the same month. The SWFWMD hearing
on the application is scheduled in early 1980.

5) Cypress Creek production continued at 30 mgd during the year. The
hydrologic and environmental study parameters were monitored through-
out the year. The results of these studies strongly supported the
Cypress Creek water resource operation and management approach being
utilized.

To further this approach a Consumptive Use Permit application was
filed in April for three additional wells in the eastern sections of
the Cypress Creek wellfield. These wells will provide for standby
capacity and rotation of production. This permit was granted in
September. The construction contracts were approved in September and
December 1979 in the amount of $942,000. The funds for this project
will come from the Authority's working capital to be recovered through
the Cypress Creek water rate structure.

We look forward to 1980 as being the first year in the last two decades in
which an adequate and dependable supply of water will be developed and available
to the Authority area. This is being accomplished with an equal emphasis being
given to the environment and the economics.

1980 REPORT



The Authority has gained maturity rapidly since its inception. When one
realizes that our first Board meeting occurred in the year 1975, the progress
made is impressive. The Authority's performance over the last year was
exceptional.

The $18,200,000 Cross Bar Project was brought on-line ahead of schedule
and within the construction budget. Considering the extensive pitfalls to be
avoided on a project of this nature, the project success was exceptional.

The $984,000 Cypress Creek well addition project was also brought on-line.
The project in this case was professionally designed and managed solely by the
Authority staff. Staff utilization to this extent continues to strengthen the
in-house expertise.

Through these projects the Authority continued to emphasize the importance
of protecting the environment and the resource. Knowledge gained from these
projects has been advanced substantially and reinforces the Authority's
commitment of responsible water resource management. The ability to share
this knowledge with the public is another important responsibility. Our future
success will be determined by how well we carry out this responsibility.

With the confidence provided from a solid foundation of Board leadership
and in-house expertise, the Authority is prepared to continue its rapid progress.

1) Financial Position The Cypress Creek water production in 1980 was
10,956,419,000 gallons which was equal to the 1979 level. The water
cost to produce and transport each 1000 gallons of water to the
St. Petersburg and Pinellas County water systems is projected for
FY 1981 at 28.64t and 30.834 respectively. This rate compares to
an adjusted FY 1980 rate of 27.044 and 29.65t respectively.

The first year production from Cross Bar Ranch was 1,507,731,000
gallons, and the water rate was 27.01t. There was no Cross Bar
Facility debt service charge in the water rate since the interest
cost was capitalized during this year.

The FY 1980 revenues from sale of water were $3,559,834 as compared
to the FY 1979 revenues of $3,129,158. The FY 1981 budget is based







upon anticipated water sale revenues of $5,776,749. The balance
statement value as of September 20, 1980 was $51,309,925.

2) Board Representation Mayor Corinne Freeman of St. Petersburg
replaced Commissioner Fran Davin as Board Chairman. Commissioner
Jerry Bowmer of Hillsborough County was elected Vice-Chairman.
The other members of the Board at years end were Commissioner
Barry Doyle of Pasco County, Commissioner Charles Rainey of
Pinellas County and Dale Twachtmann, Public Works Director of
Tampa. Commissioner John Fuller of Pasco County also served on
the Board during the year.

3) Cross Bar Ranch Wellfield A CUP of 30 average/45 maximum mgd was
approved by SWFWMD in February 1980. This allowed the Authority
to proceed with phase two of the construction project.

Water production from Cross Bar commenced on April 22, 1980. This
was two months ahead of schedule. Peak day pumpage was 17 mgd.

The construction cost budgeted was $13,000,000 and the actual costs
are within the budget.

The hydrologic and environmental monitoring investigations were
conducted at sites in and around the wellfield. The comparison of
biotic communities at control sites off the wellfield property to
sites on the property did not show any significant differences.
Monitoring of the hydrologic effects of the wellfield showed no
adverse impact. The major hydrologic effect was due to the drought
condition caused by the lack of fall and winter rainfall.

A full scale wellfield pump test to further refine the computer
hydrologic model was in process at years end. The information
to date indicated that the assumptions originally used in the model
were conservative and that actual drawdown effects are less than
the model projected.

4) The Cypress Creek wellfield construction project of three additional
wells in the eastern sections of the property was completed during
the year at a cost of $984,000. All three wells are excellent
producers. The actual well tests confirmed the projected drawdown
effects. Our management goals of having standby production capacity
and rotating production locations have been realized.

5) An Authority/St. Petersburg Agreement to provide for management and
operation of the Section 21 and Cosme Odessa Wellfields and pipeline
was executed September 17, 1980. An Authority/Hillsborough County
Agreement to develop future water supplies and manage the water
resources in the County was executed August 28, 1980. These Agreements
permit the Authority to take a giant step towards providing regional
water supply benefits throughout the Authority area.

Since these Agreements were executed the Authority has initiated water
supply projects in Northwest and South Central Hillsborough County.

1981 ANNUAL REPORT


The year 1981 was extremely active with substantial progress made
on numerous Authority projects. The need for progress was made even more
imperative for the Authority when, due to severe drought conditions,
the Southwest Florida Water Management District issued a mandatory water
shortage order and imposed water restrictions. Authority sources of
supply performed reliably, and the environmental monitoring confirmed that
pumpage effects were not adverse even during a severe drought.

The Authority entered into 1981 agreements concerning water supply
operations, management, and development with the following parties: St.
Petersburg, Hillsborough County, the Southwest Florida Water Management
District, New Port Richey, and Pasco County. These agreements advance
the movement for regional water supply development and management. Obviously
these agreements could not have been reached without tremendous effort
on the part of several individuals working on behalf of these parties as
well as the respective board and council support.

1) Financial Position The Cypress Creek Wellfield water production
in 1981 was 10,945,389,000 gallons which was equal to the 1980 level. The
water cost to produce and transport each 1000 gallons of water to the
St. Petersburg and Pinellas County water system is projected for FY 1982
at 30.66t and 32.864 respectively. This rate compares to an adjusted
FY 1981 rate of 28.21t and 30.17t respectively.

Cross Bar Ranch water production was 4,882,681,000 gallons, compared
to 1980's 1,507,731,000 production. The adjusted water rate, including
the debt serve charge, was 49.93t per 1000 gallons and is projected to be
53.85t in 1982.

The FY 1981 revenues from sale of water were $5,330,832 as compared
to the FY 1980 revenues of $3,559,834. The 1982 budget is based upon
anticipated water sale revenues of $5,874,347. The balance statement value
as of September 30, 1981 was $52,125,479.

2) Board Representation Mayor Corinne Freeman of St. Petersburg
served as Board Chairman. Commissioner Jerry Bowmer of Hillsborough County
served as Vice Chairman. The other members of the-Board at year's-end were









1981 ANNUAL REPORT

Commissioner Barry Doyle of Pasco County, Commissioner Charles Rainey of
Pinellas County, and Dale Twachtmann, Public Works Director of Tampa.

3) A new Operation and Management Agreement to carry out the intent
of the earlier 1980 agreement for Cosme-Odessa and Section 21 Wellfields
was entered into by St. Petersburg and the Authority on December 4, 1981.
This agreement spells out the responsibilities of the City and the
Authority in conjunction with those sources of supply. A Water Exchange
Contract between these parties was also entered into on December 4, 1981.
This contract allows the Authority to exchange newly developed water for
existing supplies in conjunction with the regional source of supply
development in N.W. Hillsborough County.

On November 10, 1981, Hillsborough County and the Authority entered
into a Water Supply Contract for water supply projects in N.W. Hillsborough
County and South Central Hillsborough County. This contract carries out
the intent of the earlier 1980 agreement between these parties. Planning
and testing continued for the development of these projects.

4) A Water Transfer and Management Agreement for Starkey Wellfield
was entered into by the Southwest Florida Water Management District, New
Port Richey and the Authority on December 15, 1981. Under this agreement,
the operation of the existing Starkey water production facilities becomes
the Authority's responsibility. Further development of the Starkey
Wellfield also becomes the responsibility of the Authority in conjunction
with the Water Supply Agreement for Starkey Wellfield entered into on
December 15, 1981, between New Port Richey, Pasco County, and the Authority.
The purpose of this contract is to allow the Authority to provide a water
supply for New Port Richey and Pasco County.

5) The update of the Regional Water Supply Needs and Sources Study
commenced and will be available in 1982. The original study was printed
in early 1978 and has been utilized by the Authority to assist in planning
for future water supply requirements.

6) The Tampa Bypass Canal was investigated as a source of water supply
to augment the Hillsborough River Reservoir. The Authority conducted a
pump test in May and June with 680,000,000 gallons transferred from the
canal to the reservoir. The canal was found to be an excellent source of
supply.

7) An 18 mgd full-scale pump test was conducted at the Cross Bar Ranch
Wellfield. The results confirmed that the previous drawdown projections
were accurate.

1982 ANNUAL REPORT


Implementation was the theme this year as the Authority moved forward
on both the computerization of the accounting system and on the previous
year's contracts involving St. Petersburg, Hillsborough County, New Port
Richey, Pasco County, and the Southwest Florida Water Management District.
The majority of the manual accounting system has been converted to the
electronic data processing system and will be completed in 1983. Sources of
supply facilities are under various stages of development including ongoing
construction at Starkey Wellfield and alternate supply evaluations for
Northwest and South-Central Hillsborough County.

The drought of 1980-81 was broken with 1982 rainfalls approaching
eighty-inches at the wellfield locations and water levels returning
to normal stages. Throughout the area, ecosystem recovery to pre-drought
conditions was rapid and generally complete. The ecologists continued to
monitor the ecosystems outside the wellfield properties and concluded the
wellfield operations have not produced any significant changes in the biotic
community.

1. Water Production and Financial Position The Cypress Creek Wellfield
water production in 1982 was 10,845,660,000 gallons which was
comparable to the 1981 level. The water cost to produce and trans-
port each 1,000 gallons of water to the St. Petersburg and Pinellas
County water systems is projected for FY 1983 at 31.824 and 33.974
respectively. This rate compares to an adjusted FY 1982 rate
of 28.314 and 30.384 respectively.

Cross Bar Ranch water production was 4,588,200,000 gallons which
was six percent below that of 1981. The adjusted water rate was
51.874 as compared to the rate of 49.93( in 1981. The projected
1983 rate is 55.744.

The FY 1982 revenues from water sales.were $5,601,059 as compared
to the FY 1981 revenues of $5,330,832.

The 1983 budget is based upon anticipated water sale revenues of
$6,083,130..: The balance statement value as of September 30, 1982
was $54,301,606.










1982 Annual Report

2. Board Representation Mayor Corinne Freeman of St. Petersburg
served as Board Chairman. The other members of the Board at
years end were Commissioner Jerry Bowmer of Hillsborough County,
Commissioner Curtis Law of Pasco County, Commissioner Charles
Rainey of Pinellas County, and Dale Twachtmann, Public Works
Director of Tampa. New Port Richey was granted a Board seat
and was represented by Mayor George Henry.

3. The Updated Regional Water Supply Needs & Sources Study was
completed and accepted by the Board of Directors. This Study
will serve as a guideline to future activities; it sets forth
various supply alternatives to satisfy projected water demands
through the year 1995. The impacts of increased conservation
efforts and suggested conservation programs to be evaluated
were included in the Study.

4. The Starkey Wellfield development commenced with additional
testing in the eastern portion of the wellfield. The aquifer
was found to be more transmissive in this testing than was found
earlier in the central portion. A construction contract for the
new facilities with production capacity of 15 MGD was awarded to
Woodruff & Sons based upon their low bid of $3.2 million. Well
drilling and pipeline route clearing activities are in progress.

Two other activities related to the development were securing
interim local financing and modification of the wellfield CUP.
The preparation for January 1983 local financing will allow for
fast tracking the construction prior to the expected spring of
1983 revenue bond offering. The CUP modification which was
approved in November will facilitate a phased wellfield
development.

5. A Consumptive Use Permit Application was filed for the Tampa
By-Pass Canal with a requested withdrawal of 20 MGD average
and 40 MGD maximum. Conceptual designs for the water transfer
pump station were evaluated. Preparation for short term dry
season pumpage was also made.

6. Numerous water supply alternatives for Northwest Hillsborough
County were analyzed for ecological, hydrological, and financial
feasibility. The alternatives analyzed considered various ways,
including the use of existing St. Petersburg facilities, to
provide water to the County's pump station located at Section 21
Wellfield. A final alternative selection is expected in early
1983.










1982 Annual Report
Page 3



7. Alternative evaluations were also conducted for South-Central
Hillsborough County. Pump tests were conducted in Valrico
and Medard Park. Water quality and resource availability
were determined in those areas. Conceptual groundwater,
surface water, and reverse osmosis alternative developments
were considered. Sufficient information for an alternative
selection should be available in the first half of 1983.

8. The Cross Bar project is being completed with the construction
underway of a one million dollar pump station expansion at
Cypress Creek. This expansion was necessary to provide the
firm capacity to accommodate the Cross Bar production.

9. The Authority's manual accounting system was converted to an
E.D.P. system with the securing of a Hewlett-Packard 250
Processor. The general ledger, accounts payable, and payroll
portions of the E.D.P. system were installed. This accomplish-
ment will allow the Authority to continue to provide financial
cost control efficiently and also to provide for the necessary
flexibility to meet our changing needs.

1983 ANNUAL REPORT


The Authority has made impressive progress in 1983. This becomes
evident when you read through the listing provided in this report. What is
just as impressive is that the vision for future activities continues to
increase due to the logic of a regional plan and approach. The Authority
will continue to reassess its approach while establishing a track record of
achievement. Thorough analysis of our water resource projects by including
solid environmental and hydrogeologic testing and monitoring will serve as
our foundation.

1) Water Production and Financial Position The Cypress Creek
Wellfield water production in 1983 was 10,939,650,000 gallons as
production continued at the same rate as in 1982. The water cost
to produce and transport each 1,000 gallons of water to the St.
Petersburg and Pinellas County water systems is projected for FY
1984 at 33.08t and 35.35t respectively. This rate compares to an
adjusted FY 1983 rate of 30.01t and 32.05t respectively.

Cross Bar Ranch water production in 1983 was 4,690,720,000 gallons
with production at the same ratio as in 1982. The adjusted water
rate was 55.00t as compared to the rate of 51.87t in 1982. The
projected rate in 1984 is 58.824.

For the first year under the Authority's management, Starkey
Wellfield's production was 1,361,810,000 gallons. The water rate
was 38.71t to New Port Richey and Pasco County water systems. The
FY 1984 rate is estimated at 42.36t.

Section 21 and Cosme Odessa Wellfields were managed by the
Authority with production at 7,158,000,000 gallons. The Authority
costs for these facilities were $18,346.

The Authority commenced water sales to the Hillsborough County
water system in July of 1983 through an interconnection at Section
21. The amount of water delivered was 120,482,000 gallons with a
rate of 32.90*.

The total FY 1983 revenues from water sales were $6,520,704 as
compared to the FY 1982 revenues of $5,601,059. Total water
production was 24,150,000,000 gallons compared to 15,434,000,000
gallons in 1982.






1983 Annual Report
Page 2


The FY 1984 budget is based upon anticipated revenues of
$7,824,000 and production of 25,552,000,000.

2) Board Representation Mayor Corinne Freeman of St. Petersburg
served as Board Chairman. The other members of the Board at
year's end were Commissioner E. L. Bing of Hillsborough County,
Commissioner Curtis Law of Pasco County, Commissioner Charles
Rainey of Pinellas County and Mike Salmon, Administrator of Water
Resources and Public Works, of Tampa. Mayor George Henry served
as New Port Richey's representative.

3) The new Starkey facilities were brought on-line in April 1983.
This 15 mgd development progressed on schedule and within budget.
Interim financing was secured from 1st National Bank of Florida in
January 1983, at 5.5% interest rate for $3,500,000. In addition,
$1,900,000 of Authority general funds were made available to keep
the project moving forward. Permanent financing was achieved in
December 1983, with the issuance of $8,000,000 in revenue bonds
at an interest rate of 9.75%. These funds were sufficient to pay
for the first phase of development and will also cover a portion
of additional construction to complete the wellfield facilities.
A CUP application to modify the existing CUP was filed in December
1983. This action moves us another step towards total
implementation of the Starkey Wellfield plan.

4) The Northwest Hillsborough water supply plan was approved by the
Authority and Hillsborough County Commission in January 1983. A
CUP application for this plan was filed with SWFWMD and sent to a
hearing officer in August. The Section 21 and Cosme Odessa
Wellfield CUP applications were consolidated with the Northwest
Hillsborough application for hearing purposes. A hearing on these
applications is set for January 1984. Two intervenors have been
granted petitions to oppose the applications.

Additional hydrogeologic testing has been conducted at the Sheldon
Road and Country Run sites in support of the Northwest
Hillsborough supply plan. In July an interconnection was
completed between Section 21 and the Hillsborough County water
supply system. Well 21-9 was utilized to provide water for this
interconnection. At year's end, the Authority has invested over
$800,000 in general funds for engineering, hydrogeology, and
environmental testing and monitoring.

5) Seven alternative conceptual plans for the South Central
Hillsborough source of supply with 44 mgd capacity were evaluated.
These plans included groundwater, surface water, and reverse
osmosis supply alternatives. The plan selected by the Authority
and County involves groundwater development in the Lithia -







. 1983 Annual Report
Page 3


Alderman's Ford area. Hydrogeologic testing was conducted at
Lithia and Alderman's Ford sites to support this plan. At the end
of the year, the Authority has invested nearly $1,000,000 in
general funds on this project.

6) In November 1983, the Authority Board authorized over $400,000 to
finance a regional study on water resource recovery. The project
includes the use of the Tampa Bypass Canal in conjunction with
Hookers Point AWT Plant. The objective is to determine
recharge/recovery capability of either surface or ground water.
If successful, 50-60 million gallons of water could be made
available. This quantity of water would satisfy the Authority's
needs for a 25-30 year period.

On November 2, 1983, the Authority/City of Tampa joint application
for a Tampa Bypass Canal CUP of 20 mgd average/40 mgd maximum was
approved by the Southwest Florida Water Management District.
Design of a permanent pump station to transfer water from the
Canal to the Hillsborough River has been deferred until the
resource/recovery study has been conducted

7) A conceptual design report on the Cypress Creek/Morris Bridge
interconnect was completed in June of 1983 and provided to the
Southwest Florida Water Management District and Authority members.
This report addressed the installation of supply wells along the
interconnection and the establishment of acceptable water pressure
and quality standards. The report indicated that the project was
technologically feasible.

8) Mr. Louis de la Parte was retained to act as the Authority's 1983
legislative representative. His duties included reporting to the
Board on all matters relating to water supply.

9) Mr. James Lucas was hired in July 1983 as the Director of Finance.
Mr. Lucas had been previously employed as Director of Finance and
Accounting for the Tampa Port Authority. Mr. Benjamin Sykes has
been retained as the part time Assistant Director of Finance.

10) Arthur Young & Company was hired for a 3 year engagement as
auditor. Arthur Young & Company replaces the Ernst & Whinney firm
which provided the Authority with several years of auditing
services.

11) The financial reports were changed to reflect a modified cash
accounting basis rather than the accrual basis. A project cost
system has been set up to be incorporated in the E.D.P. system.
The distribution of administrative expenses has also been
computerized.

the State of Florida, hereinafter referred to as PASCO; PINELLAS

COUNTY, a political subdivision of the State of Florida, herein-

after referred to as PINELLAS; CITY OF ST. PETERSBURG, a munici-

pal corporation, hereinafter referred to as ST. PETERSBURG;

and CITY OF TAMPA, a municipal corporation, hereinafter re-

ferred to as TAMPA.

WITNESS SET H:


WHEREAS, the parties hereto, pursuant to the provisions

of Section 7 of Chapter 74-114, Laws of Florida, 1974, and to

the provisions of Section 163.01, Florida Statutes, wish to

set forth certain agreements among themselves respecting the

creation of a regional water.supply authority; and

WHEREAS, it is recognized by the parties hereto that the

water needs of their citizens can best be met by vesting water

supply functions in such an authority whose prime function

shall be to supply water; and

WHEREAS, it is the intent of the parties hereto that the.

cost of the water and services to be provided by the authority

shall be financed insofar as possible through revenues derived

from the sale of water; and







WHEREAS, it is further the intent of the parties hereto

that, during the course of implementation and performance of

-the functions, duties and responsibilities of the authority,

the rights of the property owners and inhabitants of the area

of origin to the water reasonably required to supply adequately

their reasonable needs shall be preserved and protected; and

WHEREAS, it is the intent of the parties hereto that

Organization Philosophy: We designate areas of responsibilities so that each person can contribute
to the common goal getting the job done. Areas of responsibility are
not set up to limit the essential interaction between those areas. The
complementing of one's knowledge with another's is the basis of our success.
