Re: Water Supply Development

Dear Mr. Varn:

This letter was written in response to you memorandum to John Christensen, dated
October 18, 1996.

We are not aware of.any serious water supply problems in Polk County. However, we are
concerned that exporting of water from our area to coastal counties could create water supply
problems for us in the.future.

It is our understanding that the recent water-related problems in coastal areas, like Pinellas
and Hillsborough counties, should more accurately be referred to as "water economy
problems'. They have not exhausted all of their water supplies, only the cheapest one:
groundwater. Alternative sources exist that are virtually untapped.

We feel very strongly that any area should be obliged to develop all of their local water
sources, including surface water, reuse of wastewater, desalination, and conservation, before
they are allowed to import water. It is reasonable to expect thecost of living and the cost of
water to increase in populous areas. It is also reasonable to expect the environmental quality
of an area to degrade as its population increases. It is not reasonable to require adjacent
areas with smaller populations to sacrifice their environmental integrity and future water
supplies so that residents of populous areas can save a few cents on their water bills.

The well known economic principle of supply and demand applies equally well to water
supplies. If the price of water is allowed to fluctuate freely, then it will reflect local availability
and cost of production. Supply and demand will balance.

Please advise us of the work and meeting of the committee. My fax number is
(941) 421-7349.

Sincerely,



Marc V. Hurst, PG
