State-level Role With Regard to Water Supply Planning
**C-2. There should be more focus on water supply and water
resource development than currently exists in state-level
planning (NOT HANDS-ON INVOLVEMENT, BUT GUIDANCE).
C-3. Water supply and water resource development should be
addressed more adequately in Florida Water Plan (FWP) and State
Water Policy (SWP) rule.
Regional Water Supply Planning
C-4. Lack of water supply planning for water supply and water
resource development is not the primary problem, lack of plan
implementation is the problem.
C-5a. There io a need for oeensisteny in regional water supply
planning, needs and ourc acssments, with regard for regional
variations. While there is a need to allow for regional
variations, there is a need for consistency by the water
management districts in developing their regional water supply
plans and needs and sources assessments.
C-7b. To identify water resource development projects.
Relationship Between Local Government Comprehensive Plans (LGCPs)

Minimum Flows and Levels
**C-23. MFLS should be integrated into District Water Management
Plans (IN CONJUNCTION WITH IMPLEMENTATION PLANS FOR MFLSj. AND-FOR
WATER SUPPLY DEVELOPMENT AND WATER RESOURCE DEVELOPMENT).
Potential Recommendations for Further Discussion
**D-12. Where, at the time of its establichment, a MFL is
already b.low the limit at which it is e tablihed and the
re.oure. is rcaovorable, the WM. D hall immediatCly takc action to
dcvleop or implement an cmisting regional water supply plan to
achieve recovery of the established minimum flow or level as seon
as practicable and provide adequate water suppliec for all
existing and projected reasonable-beneficial uses. The plan

(SUBJECT TO REVISION PRIOR TO THE 1-10 MEETING).
If, at the time a MFL is established, the water level
is below the MFL, the WMD shall immediately take action to
develop and implement a regional water supply plan to achieve
recovery of the MFL. In the absence of irreparable, significant
or permanent harm to the water resources, the plan to achieve
recovery shall include a timetable that will allow the
development of new supplies to replace the reductions brought
about by the establishment of the MFL.
