Background Discussion

• The state’s water management districts periodically evaluate whether adequate water supplies exist to meet the needs of their areas.
• If a district finds that the water supply will not be adequate, it must prepare a regional water supply plan, identifying alternative ways in which water supply needs can be met for the next 20 years.
• Local governments that fall within an area subject to a regional water supply plan are required to amend their comprehensive plan to adopt a water supply plan covering at least a ten-year period.
• The most recent SWFWMD update was approved on November 17, 2015. Local governments are then required to adopt a 10-year Water Supply Facilities Work Plan into its comprehensive Plan within 18 months of approval of the RWSP.
• The deadline to meet this requirement is May 2017. The Board of County Commissioners is anticipated to adopt the Water Supply Facilities Work Plan on May 23, 2017. This comprehensive plan text amendment will adopt the 10 year water supply plan by reference and update time frames.
• Staff recommends approval.
