Land Use and Water Planning Task Force
Water Management District WMD
District Water Management Plan = WMD Plan
Regional Planning Council RPC
Strategic Regional Policy Plan RPC Plan
Natural Resources of Regional Significance
The RPC's are required to designate natural resources of regional signlicance in their
RPC Plans. The WMD's will be providing maps of water-related areas which qualify for
this designation. The details of the maps provided and the actual category s Included will
vary by WMD. The WMD's will provide the following types of maps to tie RPC's:
Regionally Significant Habitat
SWIM Water Bodies
Aquifer Recharge Areas
District-Owned Conservation Lands
Typically, these maps will be computer generated (GIS) images mapped a the scale most
usable by the RPC. In some cases, for example recharge areas in the t. Johns River
WMD, these maps will have been approved by the Governing Board as a technical
publication of the WMD. These will be the best available Information in rost instances.
Water Management Policies
Both the RPC's and the WMD's are required to develop policies for water resource
protection. For each designated regionally significant resource in an RPC Plan, the RPC
is also required to adopt a policy for its protection. Within the WMD Plan, the WMD is
required to develop policies which will guide strategies for correcting or avoiding
geographically identified water resource problems or Issues. There is a po entially strong
linkage between these two policy requirements.
Examples of policy statements within the WMD Plans follow:
Water Su22ly Require water conservation prior to allowing development or
expansion of water supply facilities.
Prohibit development of new Upper Floridan Aquifer vells for public
supply wellfields in a specified area.
