Dear Wayne:
Reoreipt S aknaowleded of yar letter of May 8, 1975, con-
oeiaa the abese project.

In Tis, yheu? poae4 thi question as to tbat authority
the Lhas to 6erty lmds lying writhing hce tils-
Sanid its tr- bettom, It is my opinion that
th,- i, as, that aM land8 beouw the mean high w ter
ma~i of the Billeboroiu h Rivr ae public lands, vhich as
normally held by th orestues of the Intexnal mprovemMnt
Trust Pundi 'how r, bamma of the special laU in Hills-
borough County n ~ rged lMrh within navigable strxW ,
bays, etc., are ovwAd eb the Taa Port Authority on behalf
of the public.
Because of th authority tht the District has over the Wills-
boarugh River, plu the fct, aeeording to the ian~mm-ta that
I have, that the Port Authority does not require pmtmi above
Colwubas Drive, I do not believe it is eeery to obtai a ,
pexit or ay easeent from the Pert atherity is a#oer for
to alter the entrance of C-3l to the Hillabheooag River, pro-
vided that we do not plea s1 tru'tere below the mean high
water lirn. If the Corps d require it, I believe that w
an certify that we haxr the right to do this, Uhiah is a little
different frm having the actual ownership of the land itself.
I all of this information cause you any problem, we ean dis-
uows it ad them talk to the Corps about it, because I m sure
that we .cw get this worked out.
Toern very truly,

MOG:bl Myran GibbOns
