TO: Pete Dunbar

FROM: Jake Varn ,J*j

RE: Water Supply

Attached are copies of the final report of the Governor's
Land Use and Water Planning Task Force and Wade Hopping's water
supply program.

With respect to Wade Hopping's proposal, he seeks to take
the water management districts out of the regulatory business and
place them in the water supply and flood control business. In my
opinion, he is headed in the wrong direction. The trend has been
to merge the DEP and water management district regulatory
programs and in most cases, give the authority to the water
management districts. Further, it is my opinion that Wade does
not understand or appreciate the fact that local government, who
now has the primary responsibility for water supply, is unwilling
to turn over the responsibility for water supply to the water
management districts. Local governments do not want to turn over
their future growth and development to the water management
districts.

With respect to the Task Force recommendations, I would
direct your attention to pages 25 and 26. In my opinion, we have
strengthened the position of the regional water supply
authorities and local government. These recommendations also
require the water management districts to make decisions and to
be less arbitrary.

As indicated, I believe that most of the recommendations
contained in this report are non-controversial. If you want to
meet or discuss these items, please call.
