MEMORANDUM

TO: "WATER USERS GROUP"

FROM: CATHY VOGEL, PAVESE, GARNER

DATE: OCTOBER 18, 1996

SUBJECT: ALTERNATIVE WATER SUPPLY NEEDS

I apologize that I will be out of the country and unable to make the October 29 meeting
of the group (Irene Quincey will be attending for Pavese, Garner). I did, however, want
to share some preliminary information regarding the need for alternative water supply
development

I have been in.touch with the South Florida, Southwest Florida and St. Johns River
Water Management Districts (those that are required by the Alemative Water Supply
Development legislation passed in 1995 to provide ad valorem funding to support water
supply development projects within their regions). I have asked the Districts to provide
me with information regarding their experience in implementing this program (i.e. what
type of requests for funding are they receiving number of requests, dollar amounts,
type of projects, level of funding that the Districts are committing to, etc.) While this
information will certainly not be comprehensive in terms of a hard analysis of the water
supply needs that exist throughout the state, it does give a feel for the scope of what we
are considering.

Presently, I am awaiting information. As required by the law, each of the three districts
are preparing an annual report on this program (SWFWMD has completed theirs, the
other two are being produced). However, some preliminary figures give us a feel for the
great disparity that exists from one district to another. For example, in South Florida 21
of 38 projects submitted were selected for funding, with a funding cap of $300,000 per
project. The total project costs of those selected were $32.3 million with the district's
share totaling $5.7 million. By contrast, in St. Johns River, 39 applications were
received totaling requests for $3.2 million. (I'm not sure if this represents the total cost
of these projects or just the request being made of the district.) For the current fiscal
year, St. Johns funded $770,000 in alternative water supply development projects.
Southwest Florida has the most substantial investment in alternative water supply

projects. Their process is somewhat more complicated based on the basin structure.
They have funded in the neighborhood of $29 million in projects, with requests in the
hundreds of millions.

I'll prepare something a little more definitive once I have written information in hand from
the agencies. In the meantime, I'll look forward to seeing you all on November 6th in
Tampa.
