Action Requested

Execution of the Amendment to Well Construction Permitting Agreement between Southwest Florida Water Management District and Manatee County, Florida, effective June 1, 2015.

Enabling/Regulating Authority

Chapter 373, F.S. - Water Resources

Chapter 40D-3, Regulation of Wells

Background Discussion

This is a one year extension of the County‚Äôs existing agreement with SWFWMD to carry out the water well permitting program.  The existing agreement was in force for the past 5 years and expires on June 1, 2015.  The extension is sought by SWFWMD to allow for District rules changes referenced within the agreement to become final. The program ensures that wells are constructed according to SWFWMD rules by licensed contractors.  This is accomplished through permit review/issuance and field inspections. The program is fully funded by permit fees.  Execution of the Agreement will provide for continuation of the program.
