Agenda Item #33
Approval of Transmittal to the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority of Water Supply Projections and Future Water Supply Needs from the Authority
Contact and/or Presenter Information
Mark Simpson, Water Division Manager, x-5258
Approval of letter to the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority with revised water supply demands and supply needs from sources developed by the PRMRWSA beginning in the year 2034.
Comprehensive Plan establishes policies for continued coordination with the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority. The Amended Interlocal Agreement creating the PRMRWSA established the County Policy to expect future water supply be coordinated with the Authority. This policy has been reaffirmed by the establishment of the Water Planning Alliance by Resolution R-01-183, and the Master Water Supply Contract (October 2005).
The 2014 population projections and estimated water demands result in essentially an unchanged schedule for the implementation of water supply options or the need for additional supply from the Peace River/Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority from those presented last year. This implementation schedule includes the implementation of additional supply of 5 MGD from the PRMRWSA in 2034. Dependent upon the results of the upcoming Minimum Flow determination for the Manatee River by the Southwest Florida Water Management District and the impending recovery strategy, the need for additional supply from the PRMRWSA may be accelerated. It is expected that the annual review of population and demand projections will allow sufficient time to adjust any implementation schedule for additional supply to offset that lost through the implementation of a Minimum Flow schedule.
The current 2015 submittal to the PRMRWSA will reflect current projections and estimated water demands, with notice that Minimum Flow results may affect future supply needs which may be reflected as early as our submittal for next year (2016).
