Water Supply


Attached are my suggested revisions. As you can see, I have
serious concerns with the directives as drafted. In my opinion,
we have a system in place to handle our water supply problems.
The only thing that the current system lacks is money to build
the water supply facilities. I am prepared to meet and discuss
these issues in an effort to narrow our differences.

The proposed directives appear to be directed more at
getting the water management districts out of the regulatory
business than solving the water supply problem. Solving the
water supply problems in not that difficult!

WATER SUPPLY
THE ISSUE OF THE FUTURE

The prime directive: The Florida Legislature should create
a state regulatory and water supply program designed to assure
there is mere-than an adequate supply of water for all users.
The fact that Florida rcccivco an annual rainfall of 50 to 55
inohco should make aehiovomont of tho prime direCtivc fOaoible if
we wiosly uoe our ourfacc and groundwater reosuraco. VVAh Ats
abundant rainfall, Florida has more than an adequate supply of
water to meet the demands of man and the natural systems.

Legislative strategies to accomplish the prime directive
should include:

1. Establish policy by statute which assigns water
managmCnt diotriCt governing bardo local government
and regional water supply authorities responsibility
for water supply planning+ and facilitating water
supply development; and water supply alloCation as a
primary mission. Continue governing board authority
over flood control, work fo the district permitting,
and conoumptivc use permitting.

2. Institute a program of systematic legislative oversight
of thc wat. r managomeCnt diC-trit to ensure orderly
progress toward meeting the water supply needs of
Florida citizens, business and the natural environment.

3. Direct water managcmcnt district board counties and
regional water supply authorities to develop adequate
sources of long term water supplies for all users. The
Legislature should ensure appropriate funding
mechanisms are available to the watcr managomCnt
diotrieot to carry out their water supply
responsibilities.

4. The proposed "Florida Water Plan" and any state water
policy should not be adopted or implemented until the
legislators have acted on the report and
recommendations of the Water Management District Review
Commission and any legislative proposals of the
appropriate House and Senate committees.

4-- 5 The water management districts should develop a
legislatively approved package of economic and
regulatory incentives designed to reduce reliance
on groundwater as the principal water source.
These incentives should include efforts to promote
conservation, water reuse, desalination and
utilization of surface waters, particularly flood
waters and other high water sources.

9-- The Legislature should continue to streamline the
regulatory process including considering the
possibility of consolidating Environmental Resource
Permitting within DEP and removing all regulatory
authority from water management districts except Part
II (consumptive use) and Part IV (works of district)
permits.
