373.1715 Minimum flows and levels; establishment and implementation.-

(1) If the existing flows or levels in the water body are below or projected to fall below a
minimum flow or level established pursuant to section 373.042, the governing board shall
immediately initiate water resource development strategies and other actions consistent with the
requirements and authority in this chapter to

(a) prevent flows or levels from falling below the established minimum flow or level; or

(b) achieve recovery to the established minimum flow or level as soon as practicable.

Any such strategies or actions shall include phasing or a timetable that will allow the
development and implementation of conservation or efficiency measures and water resource
development, including new or alternative water supplies, in conjunction with and, to the extent
practicable, concurrent with any reductions in permitted allocations or current withdrawals of
existing users. Withdrawals for new uses which would result in a net increase in total withdrawal
that would contribute to a further decline below the established minimum flow or level shall not
be authorized {except where part of the recovery strategy and where the new withdrawal
and use is otherwise consistent with the requirements of this chapter).

(2) When establishing minimum flows and levels, consistent with the requirements ofs.
373.042, the department or governing board shall consider (take into account) hydrologic
changes that have occurred as a result of alterations to surface waters which were authorized by a
permit issued pursuant to part I or part IV of this chapter, which are exempt from permitting
under those provisions or which existed prior to those provisions, and the constraints such
alterations have had on the hydrology of an affected watercourse, surface water body, or
groundwaters. Nothing in this subsection shall be construed to limit (or require} water resource
restoration.

(3) The provisions of this section shall be considered supplemental to any other specific
requirements or authority provided by law.
