Dear Buddy:

I've forwarded your request of June 20, 1974 for revision to Bill's
conceptual rendering of the FRB operational plan on down to him. Although
you didn't say when you needed them,we should have the changes compiled
in a day or two. The slides will take longer, of course, because of pro-

Regarding your suggestion to redesignate the flood detention areas as water
conservation areas or water recharge areas, my initial reaction is that I
don't agree with you. The title Water Conservation Areas would cause the
unfamiliar to associate the areas with those of the same name in the
Central and South Florida Flood Control District which function differ-
ently and have different physical properties. The term Recharge Area is
not bad now, but would become a misnomer during flood times and the inclen-
ation then would be to again call them flood detention areas. Additionally,
their primary design function is to temporarily detain flood waters. Any
increased recharge that might take place at that time is subsequential.

This is just an opinion, Buddy, which could be over-ruled. Meanwhile, we're
leaving the designations as they are. Please let me know if we can assist
you further. 7

Yo very truly,

Special Projects Director \
