RE: Regional Well Field

CarL Linn, Attorney, City of St. Petersburg, called and mentioned several items.
1. City of St. Petersburg and Pinellas County are meeting Wednesday,
March 21, 1973, to talk about common transmission lines, etc.
2. City of St. Petersburg has talked with SCLRR officials concerning
abandonment of railroad right of way near its new Pasco well field
and proposed Cypress Creek. He is anxious that thoeDistrict pursue
attaining this right of way. Some time ago D.H.T. talked with
someone about this matter and I recall that the railroad officials
indicated that the District would be given an opportunity to acquire
the lands, if they were made available.
3. The right of way would serve as an excellent location for a transmission
line. It might also be possible to locate wells along its route. At
this point we should check with the railroad to find out the possibility
of District acquisition.

Acquisition of such lands would play a major role in moving towards a regional
water system. Common transmission facilities is a reasonable goal. The trans-
mission facilities are the big cost in developing new well fields.

Carl also mentioned that City of St. Petersburg was considering providing water
to Pasco County by drilling some extra wells and have Pasco County pay for the
wells over an extended period of time. I told him that it was probably a good
idea, however, we were not very sympathetic with Pasco County. We have
provided New Port Richey with a water supply source and this is more than we've
done for anyone else and if they can't raise the funds, too bad.
