Water Use Plan

On November 9, 1976, the water use plan quarterly meeting was
held in Tallahassee. The major topic at the meeting was develop-
ment of a standard format for the water use plan.

Representatives of all the districts felt the DER draft out-
line prepared prior to the meeting was too detailed and limited
district creativity. It was the consensus that DER should
develop a general outline along with a checklist of the require-
ments of Chapter 373, F.S. The checklist will be included at the
end of each district plan and will reference where iA the plan
those required items of 373 can be found. If an item is not ad-
dressed in the district plan, reasons will be given under the
specific items on the checklist.

After reviewing all district outlines, notes from the meeting
and requirements of Chapter 373, we have developed the enclosed
draft outline and checklist. The numbers under each major
heading of the outline indicate the requirements of Chapter 373
(see checklist) and are suggestions as to where in each district
plan those items might be discussed.

After the meeting a question was raised concerning the final
printing of each water management district plan. The department
recommended that the water use plan be printed on 8 1/2 x 14 paper
oriented with long axis left to right and 2 columns per page.

Attached is a status report on the list of "action items" which
the WMD and DER are pursuing.
