   b. Approval of Resolution No. 76 for Fiscal Year 2010 Budget Amendment for
      Reallocation of Revenue From State Appropriations for the Facilitating
      Agricultural Resource Management Systems (FARMS) Program

       Purpose
       The purpose of this item is to request approval of Resolution No. 76 to amend the
       Manasota Basin Board budget for fiscal year (FY) 2010 to reallocate State
       Appropriations revenue in the amount of $384,720 from the Basin to the District’s
       General Fund to implement projects in the District’s Facilitating Agricultural Resource
       Management Systems (FARMS) Program.

       Background
       The District's FARMS Program, developed by the District and Florida Department of
       Agriculture and Consumer Services, is a public/private agricultural Best Management
       Practice (BMP) cost-share reimbursement program. FARMS is intended to expedite the
       implementation of production-scale agricultural BMPs that provide water resource
       benefits. Resource benefits of the FARMS Program include reduced Upper Floridan
       aquifer withdrawals, water quality improvements (both from ground water and surface
       water sources) and/or conservation, and restoration and augmentation of the area's
       water resources and ecology. The District's emphasis through the FARMS Program is
       on reductions in Upper Floridan aquifer withdrawals that will improve ground water
       conditions as documented in the Southern Water Use Caution Area (SWUCA) recovery
       strategy. In addition, the District also provides funding for projects that improve water
       quality affected by the use of mineralized ground water as documented in the Shell and
       Prairie Creek Watershed Management Plan – Reasonable Assurance Documentation.
       Per FARMS Rule 40D-26, Florida Administrative Code, reimbursement cost-share rates
       are capped at 50 percent for water quantity withdrawal reductions from the Upper
       Floridan aquifer; or from any combination of ground, surface, or reclaimed water
       sources; or water quality improvements realized from decreasing the use of mineralized
       ground water; or natural system improvements in the Upper Myakka River Watershed
       (UMRW). Reimbursement cost-share rates are capped at 75 percent for both water
       quantity and water quality or natural systems improvements.

       As of February 22, 2010, there are currently 86 Board approved FARMS projects located
       in the following areas: 78 in the SWUCA, 3 in the Northern Tampa Bay Water Use
       Caution Area, and 5 not in a Water Use Caution Area. The projected offset of
       groundwater pumping for the 86 projects is 14.08 million gallons per day (mgd), with 51
       operational projects totaling 6.8 mgd of actual offset over the past 12 months. Project
       funding since the FARMS Program inception in FY2003 totals $18.43 million, of which
       56 percent represents FARMS Program funding and 44 percent represents grower
       contributions.

       The District share of FARMS Program projects are typically funded 50 percent from state
       appropriations, 25 percent from the respective Basin and 25 percent from the District’s
       General Fund. In fiscal years 2004-2009, the District obtained $6,400,000 in state
       appropriations to support the FARMS Program. In FY2010, the District did not obtain
       any state appropriation funding to support the FARMS Program and no additional state
       appropriations are anticipated for FY2011. As a result of the decline in state support, all
       state appropriations have been allocated to FARMS projects, with the exception of
       $384,720 currently available only to the Manasota Basin.

       Staff requests reallocation of the $384,720 currently available in the Manasota Basin
       FARMS Program budget (H017) to the District’s General Fund FARMS Program budget
       through a budget amendment to support proposed FY2010 FARMS projects throughout
       the District. This proposed budget amendment, if approved, would decrease the
Summary Agenda                                                                     April 14, 2010
Manasota Basin Board                                                                Page 3 of 12

       Manasota Basin’s FY2010 budget by $384,720 and increase the District’s General Fund
       budget by the same amount, $384,720, with no impact on the District’s total combined
       budget.

       Impact If Not Funded
       If the amendment is not approved, state appropriation funds will remain in the Manasota
       Basin budget and will eventually be used for FARMS projects. However, other Basins,
       primarily the Peace River Basin, have a more immediate need to utilize these state
       appropriation funds to match Basin and General Fund funds. These funds will be added
       to the District’s General Fund budget for use by all Basins, including the Manasota
       Basin, as FARMS Program projects develop.

       Staff Recommendation:                                                           Exhibit 2

       Approve Resolution No. 76 to amend the Manasota Basin Board budget for FY2010 by a
       decrease of $384,720 to reflect the reallocation of revenue from State Appropriations.

       Presenters:     Eric C. DeHaven, P.G., Director
                       Resource Data and Restoration Department

   c. Amendment to Conservation Easement – Myakka State Forest, SWF Parcel
      No. 21-708-108

       Purpose
       The purpose of this item is to request the Governing Board approve an amendment to a
       Conservation Easement (CE) on (SWF Parcel No. 21-708-108) approximately 15 acres
       surrounded by Myakka State Forest in Sarasota County. A general location map
       depicting the subject parcel is included in the board packet as an exhibit to this item.

       Background/History
       The 7,654-acre Forest was acquired in fee by the District and the Board of Trustees of
       the Internal Improvement Trust Fund (State) in 1995 with each party holding 50 percent
       title. The 15-acre CE is located within the boundaries of the Forest and was excluded
       from the fee purchase due to the presence of a cattle dip site. The District acquired the
       CE over the 15 acre parcel at no-cost.

       The Florida Equestrian Youth Ranch Inc. has acquired the underlying fee interest in the
       CE property and has requested an amendment to the terms and conditions of the CE to
       allow for improvements necessary for the operation of a non-profit equestrian youth
       camp.

       In 1997 the District and Division of Forestry (DOF) entered into an Intergovernmental
       Lease Agreement to designate DOF as the lead manager of the Forest. The DOF
       concurs with the proposed modifications to the CE.

       The existing CE terms prohibit:
         Construction of buildings, roads, signs, billboard or other advertising, utilities, or
          other structures on or above the ground.
         Dumping or placing of soil or other substances or materials as landfill or dumping or
          placing of trash, waste, or unsightly or offensive material.
         Excavation, drilling, or removal of loam, gravel, soil, rock or other materials.
Summary Agenda                                                                    April 14, 2010
Manasota Basin Board                                                               Page 4 of 12

       The Amended CE terms allow for:
         A 12,000 square foot impact area for the purpose of barn, pavilion, restrooms, and
          the rebuilding of two existing houses to be used as bunk houses.
         Two entrance signs not to exceed 15 square feet, the design and placement to be
          approved by DOF.
         Excavation and maintenance of live stock watering pond not to exceed one acre
          subject to all permitting requirements.
         Installation and maintenance of up to three four-inch water wells subject to
          compliance with state and local permitting.
         The parcel can be used for non-profit youth related activities.
         Guidelines published by the Natural Resources Conservation Service titled
          Agricultural Waste Management Field Handbook and Range and Pasture Handbook
          will be followed as well as all related best management practices (BMPs).
         No construction will occur in wetland areas.
         No construction in the dip site area.
         A right of first refusal is granted to the District should the property be sold.

       Benefits/Costs
       The amendment of this CE will not affect the initial intent of the original CE and the
       property will continue to be protected from development while providing an additional
       benefit to the public by providing opportunities for youth equestrian and wilderness
       camping experiences. Additionally, the amended CE adds a provision for the District’s
       first-rights-of-refusal if the land is offered for sale.

       Staff Recommendation:                                                          Exhibit 3

       Recommend the Governing Board approve the Amendment to the Conservation
       Easement on SWF Parcel No. 21-708-108.

   b. Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority – Water Resources and
      Supply Report

       Purpose
       Present updated information on the potable water supplies available within the Peace
       River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority (Authority) area and the distribution of
Summary Agenda                                                                      April 14, 2010
Manasota Basin Board                                                                 Page 6 of 12

       potable resources among the Authority’s customers to meet twenty-year water supply
       demands. This item is for the Board’s information.

       Background/History
       The Authority and its member governments currently maintain over 100 mgd of
       combined finished water capacity. In December 2009 the demand on that 100 mgd of
       capacity was approximately 58 mgd. Regional interconnections can provide customers
       and partners with access to these unused Authority and member government supplies.

       Mr. Pat Lehman, Executive Director of the Authority, will present the water supply
       capacity and use of each member government; and discuss how existing and future
       regional transmission mains can defer the need to develop new supplies, make optimal
       use of existing investments in water supply, and facilitate source rotation for
       environmental management. This information is being utilized by District staff in the

   c. 2010 Regional Water Supply Plan Update

       Purpose
       The purpose of this agenda item is to present information regarding recent activities in
       the compilation of the 2010 Regional Water Supply Plan Update and to discuss the
       significant findings of the Regional Water Supply Plan.

       Background
       Chapter 373 Florida Statutes requires each water management district to initiate a
       District-wide water supply assessment that describes water demands and identifies
       potential sources of water to meet demand over a 20-year planning horizon. If the
       assessment indicates available water supplies could not meet projected demands and
       sustain the related natural systems, a regional water supply plan shall be developed for
       that area. The District completed the first assessment in 1998 and associated Regional
       Water Supply Plan in 2001, a subsequent update was completed in 2005.

       District staff is currently developing the 2010 updated plan and anticipates a draft
       Regional Water Supply Plan for public comment in April 2010. After stakeholder input
       through public workshops, Basin Boards and the Advisory Committees, it is anticipated
       the Regional Water Supply Plan will be presented to the Governing Board for their
       consideration in November 2010.

       The presentation will describe the current project status, discuss the significant findings
       within each Planning Region and detail the upcoming public outreach.

       Staff Recommendation:

       This item is presented for the Board’s information; no action is required. Staff welcomes
       any input or direction on this update.

   d. Fiscal Year 2011 Budget Preparation

       Purpose
       To present the Basin’s preliminary fiscal year (FY) 2011 budget for discussion and initial
       direction from the Basin Board regarding the funding levels of the various budget
       categories, including prioritization of Cooperative Funding proposals and other Basin
       projects, and to show how the preliminary budget supports the Basin Board’s current
       budget priorities.

       Background
       In April, the preliminary FY2011 budget will be presented to the Basin Board for the first
       time for discussion. Staff will review the budget and seek direction regarding the projects
       identified, the funding levels and priorities. The preliminary budget assumes the millage
       rate will remain at 0.1484 mill and property values will decline by 10 percent. The
       estimated decline in property values is based on March 1, 2010 projections published by
       the Legislature’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research and informal estimates
       obtained from the county property appraisers.            Based on the current revenue
       projections, the amount of additional taxes that would need to be levied, if all
       Cooperative Funding proposals were funded, is shown as the last revenue item to
       balance the budget. A funding line identifies the last project that the Basin Board could
       fully fund at its existing millage rate, based on project rankings and revenue projections
       as of this date.

       Staff will then provide an analysis of how the proposed Cooperative Funding Initiative
       (CFI) applications reflect the current Basin budget priorities, and highlight projects in the
       proposed FY2011 budget that are consistent with the priorities.

       In June, staff will update the estimate of ad valorem revenue for FY2011, based on the
       formal June 1 estimates of property value from the county property appraisers. The
       Basin Board will be requested to adopt a proposed millage rate for recommendation to
       the Governing Board prior to the Governing Board’s meeting on July 27, for certification
       to the county property appraisers by August 4. The Basin’s proposed millage rate is the
       rate that will be used for the Truth in Millage (TRIM) Notices of Proposed Property
       Taxes. After the proposed millage rate has been adopted, it can be lowered but not
       raised without a special first class mailing to all taxpayers within the Basin boundaries.

       In August, the Basin Board will be requested to adopt a final FY2011 millage rate and
       budget for recommendation to the Governing Board.

       The budget information provided includes: Budget Progress Report for the five months
       ended February 28, 2010; Multi-Year Project Commitments and Budget Projections
       Report (FY2011-FY2015); Budget Comparison Report for FY2011; and New CFI
       Applications by FY2011 Basin Budget Priorities, under the Budget tab in the Information
       and Budget Notebook. Detailed project descriptions for each project considered in the
       preliminary budget are provided in the Projects Notebook or on the District’s web site
       where the notebooks are posted. Project managers have reviewed and provided a staff
       recommendation for each proposal.

       Staff Recommendation:                              See Budget Tab and Projects Notebook

       Provide staff direction on developing the Basin’s tentative FY2011 budget for the
       June 2010 meeting.

                                   ***Information Items***
The items listed below are for the Board's information, intended to keep the Board apprised of
completed projects, cancelled projects, and projects that have executed contracts and are ready
to begin. The items do not require Board action at this time.

1. Non-Exclusive License Agreement to Florida Gas Transmission Company for a
   24-inch Natural Gas Pipeline – Little Manatee River Corridor, SWF Parcel No.
   21-058-104X [Exhibit 6]

   Background/History
   Florida Gas Transmission Company has requested the District grant them a no-cost, non-
   exclusive license agreement for permanent and temporary corridors on the Southfork Tract
   to construct, operate and maintain a 24-inch natural gas pipeline. The pipeline is a part of
   FGT’s Phase VIII Expansion Project which consists of creating 482 miles of multi-diameter
   pipeline in Alabama, Mississippi and Florida. The project is needed to meet the growing
   natural gas needs of the Gulf Coast and Florida. The Federal Energy Regulatory
   Commission has conducted an environmental assessment of the corridors proposed under
   the project and will be issuing a certificate of public convenience and necessity to FGT by
   March 2010.

   Florida Gas Transmission Company is requesting that the District grant them a 50-foot
   permanent corridor (4.024 acres) and temporary staging areas of varying sizes that total
   2.367 acres. The alignment of the permanent and temporary corridors is collocated with an
   existing Gulfstream natural gas pipeline corridor constructed in 2000. Florida Gas
   Transmission will also be utilizing portions of the Gulfstream corridor to minimize additional
   impacts to District lands. Staff has evaluated the corridor on the Southfork Tract and
   determined that the alignment of the pipeline corridor is on the extreme southern boundary
   of the property and collocated to the greatest extent possible with the existing gas pipeline
   and is the route with the least impacts.

   Summary of Appraisals and Value Comparisons
   Consistent with District policy, the District may receive compensation for the license
   agreement being granted to FGT. An appraisal dated November 4, 2009 was prepared by
   McKeon & Menard and submitted to the District. The appraiser estimated that the District
   should receive $24,800 for the permanent and temporary corridors.

   District staff has prepared a license agreement that contains standard terms and conditions
   which include but are not limited to:

      Term will run concurrently with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Certificate
       of Public Convenience and Public Necessity for the pipeline facilities;
      A final design and construction plan for the pipeline facilities will be submitted to the
       District for approval;
      FGT will ensure that all federal, state and local permits are obtained;
      FGT will indemnify the District and carry appropriate insurance;
      FGT will restore lands to original grade and stabilize; and
      All public recreation entrance amenities such as parking lot, kiosk, fence and public
       signage will be restored.

   Florida Gas Transmission Company has advised the District that it must meet an April 1,
   2010 construction deadline for the natural gas pipeline to meet service commitments to its
   customers. Therefore, per FGT’s request, this item was presented to the Governing Board
   for consideration at the Board’s March meeting.
Summary Agenda                                                                      April 14, 2010

   Benefits/Costs:
    This is at no-cost to the District as FGT will be responsible for all construction, operation
      and maintenance of the pipeline and its facilities.
    Revenue will be placed in the District’s interest-bearing land management account and
      used to offset land management costs.

                                     Cancellation Notices

2. Facilitating Agricultural Resource Management Systems (FARMS) – Sandy Branch
   Ranch (H565), Manatee County
   The cooperator for Sandy Branch Ranch has voluntarily canceled an executed agreement
   for a FARMS project on their 500-acre combination tomato farm and citrus grove in Manatee
   County. This project was approved by the Manasota Basin Board on October 15, 2008, and
   by the Governing Board on October 28, 2008. No work had begun on the project prior to
   cancellation. The primary goal of the project was to reduce Upper Floridan aquifer
   groundwater withdrawals through the use of an automated irrigation system which included
   three automated pumps and zoned valve controls for three Upper Floridan wells to reduce
   duration of irrigation events. The proposed project was expected to save a minimum of five
   percent of the permitted quantities for the farm and grove, equivalent to 33,660 gallons per
   day. Total project costs were estimated to be $85,000 with a not-to-exceed FARMS eligible
   reimbursement of $63,750 (75 percent of total project costs).              The 2003 State
   Appropriations were to be used for the reimbursement. These funds will be returned to the
   FARMS general fund for reallocation to new projects.

3. FARMS - Old Florida Investments (H566), Manatee County
   The Old Florida Investments project is being canceled due to the cooperator’s inability to
   execute an agreement for a FARMS project on their 220-acre tomato farm in Manatee
   County. This project was approved by the Manasota Basin Board on October 15, 2008, and
   by the Governing Board on October 28, 2008. The cooperator completed the work that was
   to be funded by this project. The primary goal of the project was to reduce groundwater
   withdrawals from the Upper Floridan aquifer through the efficient use of an automated
   irrigation system that would include the automation of a pump and zoned valve controls.
   The proposed project was expected to save a minimum of five percent of the permitted
   quantities of the farm, equivalent to 29,200 gallons per day. Total project costs were
   estimated to be $87,000 with a not-to-exceed FARMS eligible reimbursement of $43,500
   (50 percent of total project costs). Of this amount, $21,750 of the 2005 State Appropriations
   was requested for the reimbursement, the Governing Board was requested to fund $10,875,
   and the Manasota Basin Board was requested to fund $10,875. These funds will be
   returned to the FARMS general fund for reallocation to new projects.

4. FARMS - Gemstone Grove (H577), Manatee County
   The cooperator for Gemstone Grove has voluntarily canceled an executed agreement for a
   FARMS project on their 225-acre citrus grove in Manatee County. The project was
   approved by the Manasota Basin Board on April 15, 2009, and by the Governing Board on
   April 28, 2009. No work had begun on the project prior to cancellation. The primary goal of
   the project was to reduce groundwater withdrawals from the Upper Floridan aquifer and
   reduce agricultural runoff through the installation of a solar-powered sensor system to
   monitor the grove water requirements and optimize irrigation scheduling. The proposed
   project was expected to save a minimum of five percent of the permitted quantities of the
   grove, equivalent to 11,350 gallons per day. Total project costs were estimated to be
   $16,990 with a not-to-exceed FARMS eligible reimbursement of $12,740 (75 percent of total
   project costs). The 2003 State Appropriations were to be used for the entire reimbursement.
   These funds will be returned to the FARMS general fund for reallocation to new projects.

5. FARMS - Lakeshore Knolls (H578), Manatee County
   The cooperator for Lakeshore Knolls has voluntarily canceled an executed agreement for a
   FARMS project on their 448-acre citrus grove in Manatee County. The project was approved
   by the Manasota Basin Board on April 15, 2009, and by the Governing Board on April 28,
   2009. No work had begun on the project prior to cancellation. The primary goal of the
   project was to reduce groundwater withdrawals from the Upper Floridan aquifer through the
   installation of a solar-powered sensor system to monitor the grove water requirements and
   optimize irrigation scheduling. The proposed project was expected to save a minimum of
   five percent of the permitted quantities of the grove, equivalent to 22,900 gallons per day.
   Total project costs were estimated to be $12,984 with a not-to-exceed FARMS eligible
   reimbursement of $6,492 (50 percent of total project costs). Of this amount, $3,246 of 2005
   State Appropriations was requested for the reimbursement, the Governing Board was
   requested to fund $1,623, and the Peace River Basin was requested to fund $1,623. These
   funds will be returned to the FARMS general fund for reallocation to new projects.

6. Sarasota County – GIS Dataset Development (L867)
   In response to a cooperative funding request from Sarasota County, the Manasota Basin
   Board included funding of $100,000 for the Sarasota County - Geographic Information
   System Dataset Development Project in their fiscal year (FY) 2009 budget. This recap is to
   inform the board that this project has been completed at a total cost of $100,000, which is
   within budget.

   Sarasota County Environmental Services is creating and maintaining a comprehensive
   Geographic Information System (GIS) database to support surface water modeling and
   stormwater asset management functions. This project enhances the quality of the data
   supporting modeling activities by gathering accurate locations and characteristics of key
   stormwater assets. Among many potential applications, these data will aid in the
   development and management of watershed management plans through hydrologic model
   maintenance/ updates and point and non-point pollutant source identification. This project
   enhances the County's current stormwater infrastructure database that consists of control
   structures, inlets, pipes, pipelines, ditches, swales and retention/detention ponds. These
   data will be used by the County to generate and maintain a common database that will
   support water quality, hydrologic and hydraulic models. As part of the hydrologic model and
   for the purposes of this project, horizontal survey data collection refers to structures such as
   pump stations, weirs, ponds and wetlands which combine to form part of a drainage
   infrastructure. By collecting this information through the means of a horizontal survey the
   data can be used for more accurate modeling in the event of severe weather impacts or for
   planning purposes due to urbanization.

6. Discussion Items:

   a. Florida Water Star℠ Gold (FWSG) — Recognition of Sarasota County Builder
      Ms. Sylvia Durell, project manager for the Florida Water Star℠ Gold (FWSG) program,
      reported a new feature for Basin Board meetings: recognition of area builders who
      achieve FWSG status. The voluntary certification program for builders focuses on indoor
      and outdoor conservation and best management practices for landscapes. Currently, in
      this District, 22 homes have been certified FWSG and 13 builders have signed
      agreements with intent to build homes according to FWSG standards. Builders whose
      homes earn FWSG certification become members of an elite group of builders who have
      added enough water conservation measures to the homes they build to gain points
      required to meet program criteria.

       Ms. Susan Douglas, FWSG Program Coordinator, presented a commemorative
       certificate to Mr. Jeffery Gates of Beechwood Builders who is the first FWSG-certified
       builder in Sarasota County; the FWSG house he built is in Venice. After presentation of
       the certificate, Basin Board members joined Ms. Douglas and Mr. Gates for a group
       photo and congratulations. (CD 1/Track 2/14:46:30)

   b. Legislative Update
      Ms. Terri Behling, Community Affairs Program Manager, provided the Board a preview of
      proposed legislative initiatives, other State issues, and State budget priorities for the
      upcoming legislative session.
       Proposed legislative initiatives include clarification of Basin Board language
         contained in Senate Bill 2080, abolishment of the Peace Creek Drainage District, and
         well pump depth.
       Other State Issues: delegation of permit approval, stormwater regulations, and
         springs protection.
       State budget priorities: Although no State funds are expected for this District, Florida
         Forever, the Water Management Lands Trust Fund, Water Protection and
         Sustainability Trust Fund, and the West-Central Florida Water Restoration Action
         Plan (WRAP) are priorities.

       To a question from Co-Chair Beruff, Mr. Ray Pilon, Government/Community Affairs
       Director for the Peace River Manasota Regional Water Supply Authority, explained
       resolution of the Charlotte County/Punta Gorda pipeline issue, which occurred through
       mediation. Both the Charlotte County Board of County Commissioners and the Punta
       Gorda City Commission approved the mediation, and the project is moving forward.
        (CD 1/Track 2/14:50:55)

   c. Establishment of Numeric Water Quality Standards for Nutrients
      Ms. Veronica Craw, Environmental Section Manager, Resource Projects, provided an
      overview of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) recently released
      proposal on numeric nutrient criteria for Florida. She provided information on why
      numeric criteria are being proposed now, what is contained in the draft rule, and how
      Florida will be impacted.

       A 2008 lawsuit claimed that numeric nutrient criteria are necessary and that the EPA is
       obligated by the Clean Water Act to propose such criteria for lakes, streams, springs,
       and South Florida canals. The EPA is also proposing 1) an approach for deriving
       Federal site-specific alternative criteria based on submissions of scientifically defensible
       calculation and 2) “restoration standards” that will enable stakeholders the necessary
       time (up to 20 years) to take incremental steps to achieve interim standards as they
       move closer to meeting the designated use.

       Further, Ms. Craw reported that the impaired waters list can be expected to increase
       significantly if EPA Numeric Nutrient Standards are implemented. She emphasized that
       once “impaired,” the requirement for Total Maximum Daily Load (TMDL) development
       and a Basin Management Action Plan (BMAP) are necessary for implementation. TMDL
       development could take up to 10 years after a water body is designated as “impaired.”
       Cost of all related processes will be great.

       Public workshops are planned throughout the State on February 16, 17, and 18, in
       Tallahassee, Orlando, and West Palm Beach, respectively. The District will be
       represented at each meeting. The written comment period closes on March 29, 2010.

       Detailed information on Numeric Nutrient Standards and upcoming workshops may be
       found at http://www.epa.gov/waterscience/standards/rules/florida/.

       Others topics of discussion during this presentation included how site-specific criteria
       may compare to previous percentages; the importance of science-based information to
Minutes of the Meeting                                                            February 10, 2010
Manasota Basin Board                             DRAFT                                  Page 4 of 6

       this process; the potential for additional requests for cooperative funding due to new
       standards; does the District have the technology to approach the standards; and impacts
       to permittees, agriculture, utility payers, etc.
       In closing, Ms. Craw made the following statements:
        The rule is a Federal rule, which will be finalized in October 2010 and remain
           enforceable even under challenge.
        The rule is subject to change as a result of comments received during the public
           comment period,
        The rule will result in an increase in impaired waters within Florida, and,
        The rule will mostly impact permitted dischargers, industrial and domestic, through
           their National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permits.
       She added that Florida is not in this alone; 25 states have no numeric criteria. Florida,
       however, seems to be the “tip of the spear” on this issue.
       Co-Chair Beruff complimented Ms. Craw on her excellent presentation.
       This item was presented for the Board’s information; no action was required. (CD 1/
       Track 2/15:02:11)
   d. Fiscal Year 2011 Budget Status and Cooperative Funding Requests
      Ms. Dianne Davies, Basin Planner, provided a review of the economic issues affecting
      Basin budgets, a preview of the Cooperative Funding applications received for the fiscal
      year (FY) 2011 budget cycle, and an overview of the annual Cooperative Funding
      Initiative (CFI) and budget process. She directed the Board's attention to the original
      CFI applications that were received in December 2009 and provided behind the FY2011
      CFI Applications tab in the meeting notebook. She then provided a brief overview of this
      Basin's project submittals by area of responsibility and considering the Basin's budget
      priorities for FY2011 that were set at the August 2009 meeting. In reviewing the
      categories of the budget, Ms. Davies reported that the Florida Yards and Neighborhoods
      program will be moved from the Cooperative Funding category to the Basin Initiative
      category in FY2011. This move reflects staff’s recognition that these projects are core to
      Basin priorities and essential to District work.
       Ms. Davies reminded Board members that review of the original Cooperative Funding
       applications is the first step in the process of deciding which projects the Board will fund.
       Staff will return to the April meeting with initial project rankings and funding
       recommendations for the Board's consideration. The preliminary budget will be
       presented and the millage cap set at the June Basin Board meeting, for final approval in
       August.
       While the CFI projects make up a significant percentage of the Basin’s budget,
       Ms. Davies emphasized that other factors are also integral to the budget: on-going
       activities (staff time), property appraiser and tax collector commissions, Save Our
       Rivers, Basin Initiatives, Surface Water Improvement and Management (SWIM) projects,
       and Water Supply and Resource Development projects.
       As mentioned earlier in the meeting, Board members were given homework. Within the
       next two weeks, review the FY2011 CFI project applications and notify staff if there are
       questions. Cooperators will be invited to attend the April Basin Board meeting to answer
       questions and provide additional information. Board members should be prepared to
       provide input at the April meeting, also.

       This item was presented for the Board's information; no action was required.         (CD 1/

7. Reports:
   a. Basin Board Education Committee (BBEC)
      Mr. Carraway, the Basin’s primary representative on the BBEC, reminded Board
      members that written reports of the November 4, 2009, BBEC meeting and FY2010
      Community Education Grants were included in the meeting notebook. Other highlights
      from the meeting included conservation and awareness events, workshops with area
      Homeowner Associations regarding Senate Bill 2080/Florida Friendly LandscapingTM,
      the Get Outside! campaign, youth education on District lands, and research on
      advertising development. (CD 1/Track 2/15:50:43)
   b. Basin Board Land Resources Committee (BBLRC)
      Co-Chair Joerger, chair of the BBLRC, briefly commented on several topics of interest
      from the December 1, 2009, BBLRC meeting, which was held in the Green Swamp West
      meeting facility. A full report of the meeting was included as an exhibit in the meeting
      notebook. Mr. Strelec, the Board’s primary representative on the BBLRC, commented
      on an interesting presentation of the Geographic Information System (GIS) utilized in the
      District’s Project Boundary Review. Purpose of the Review is to update boundaries for
      lands proposed for protection under the District’s Florida Forever program.
       Staff will arrange a live demonstration of the District’s GIS for the April 14 Basin Board
       meeting. (CD 1/Track 2/15:54:17)
   c. Sarasota Bay Estuary Program (SBEP) Policy Board
      Mr. Mark Alderson, Executive Director of the SBEP, gave this report instead of
      Mr. Bispham, the Board’s representative on the SBEP Policy Board. He began by
      praising Ms. Craw’s presentation on numeric nutrient criteria, saying it was the best he
      has heard in the State of Florida. He then spoke of the SBEP’s involvement with the
      numeric nutrient criteria issue, which was the main topic of the January 15 SBEP Policy
      Board meeting. He reported that the SBEP Technical Committee is compiling notes for
      the February 17 public meeting and that the SBEP will send written comments, also.
      Mr. Alderson stressed the importance of consistency of comments from groups
      throughout the area.
       Other topics of discussion included “potential profound economic impact” of the numeric
       nutrient criteria rule; the importance of a balanced, science-based approach; and a
       sensitivity analysis of the EPA models.
       Mr. Bispham thanked Mr. Alderson for the work he and the SBEP have done, without a
       great amount of funding, to accomplish major improvements for Sarasota Bay.
       Mr. Alderson introduced Ms. Sara Peatrowsky, SBEP Public Outreach Coordinator, who
       showed a short video about Sarasota Bay. Mr. Alderson then presented the first Gulf
       Guardian Partnership award to the Basin Board for its contribution in restoring Sarasota
       Bay. Afterwards, Ms. Peatrowsky and Mr. Alderson joined the Board for a group photo,
       thanks, and congratulations. (CD 1/Track 2/15:57:26)
   d. Governing Board Activities
      Co-Chair Joerger reported that the major topic of the February Governing Board meeting
      was the recent, record frost/freeze event and associated water withdrawals/dry wells in
      the Plant City/Dover area. Ms. Kavouras interjected that the continuing four-year
      drought has lowered aquifer levels in that area and the additional pumping was so
      concentrated in that area that weak areas collapsed with sinkholes. She also reported
      that several public workshops are scheduled to address this issue going forward.
       Use of reclaimed water and the sinkhole issue were topics of brief discussion during this
       report.

         Co-Chair Joerger expressed gratitude to the District and the agricultural community for
         their quick response to frost/freeze issues. (CD 1/Track 2/16:18:48)

8. Announcements
   Ms. Kavouras brought members’ attention to announcements listed on the agenda.

    Ms. Benac reported that Girl Scouts of Gulf Coast Florida are sponsoring a fundraiser on
    March 6, beginning at 6 p.m., involving Camp Honi Hanta on the Braden River in Manatee
    County. The District has provided funding for wetlands restoration in that area. Tours will
    be available; the event is open to the public. (CD 1/Track 2/16:24:20)

   “Skip a Week” Campaign Update
     Melissa Roe, senior communications coordinator, gave an overview of the District’s public
     service advertising campaign, which promoted skipping a week of irrigation in the winter
     months. The campaign concluded February 14. In addition to the radio, television, billboard
     and newspaper advertising, the District promoted the messages through the following:
         Water Conservation Restroom Trailer at special events, including the Florida State
           Fair
         Bus wraps provided free through LAMAR Advertising on 30 Hillsborough Area
           Regional Transit buses
         Series of personal appearances at Lowe’s by actors featured in ads
         Facebook, Twitter and the District’s web site
         News releases
         January utility bill stuffers in Pasco, Tampa, Hillsborough, Lakeland and St.
           Petersburg
         Partners, such as Florida Yards & Neighborhoods programs, throughout the District

    A posttest survey will be conducted in March to measure effectiveness of campaign.

   Education Project Criteria
    Michael Molligan, communications director, discussed staff’s refined criteria for ranking and
    prioritizing education projects being considered for FY2011. Although education project
    funding has remained relatively flat over the last four years, as basins’ budgets have
    decreased, education project funding accounts for an increasing percentage of those
    budgets — from an average of 2.45% in FY2008 to potentially exceeding 5% in FY2011. In
    the Peace River Basin, that amount is significantly higher — potentially exceeding 13%.
    Because of shrinking resources, all FY2011 projects considered for education funding have
    faced more stringent review. In addition to educational value and benefit to the District, staff



                                                 2
    looks at cost benefit, justification of need, proportion of project cost to total basin budget,
    potential for behavior change and evaluation methods.

    In response to continued pressures on funding, staff conducted a literature review on the
    value of exhibits, which are traditionally one of the most costly types of education projects.
    Although large-scale studies are not available, a group of smaller studies indicate that
    exhibits often inspire, but do not achieve lasting knowledge gain or behavior change. The
    average time a visitor spends with an exhibit is two minutes.

    Based on this research, several factors will be considered in ranking exhibit projects:
        Justification of need
        Alignment of facility’s overall message with District’s mission
        Education linked to school curriculum
        Number of visitors attending the center multiple times
        Collection by facility of pre- and post-evaluation data
        Exhibits provide opportunities for visitors to exercise choices
        Facility has staff member available at the exhibit to answer questions
        Exhibit is located near front of facility
        Facility guarantees five-year life expectancy

    These more stringent criteria are reflected in staff’s rankings of FY2011 Cooperative
    Funding Initiative education projects.

   Next Meeting
    The next BBEC meeting will be Wednesday, July 14, 2010, at the Tampa Service Office.

Basin Board Land Resources Committee (BBLRC) and
Land Use Stakeholders Joint Meeting
March 16, 2010, Sarasota Service Office

The Basin Board Land Resources Committee met jointly with the Land Use Stakeholders at the
Sarasota Service Office on March 16, 2010. Topics were presented by staff and open
discussion ensued on the following:

1) Signage Strategy
   A multi-departmental team of staff initiated a research effort to determine the most effective
   approach to enhance awareness of District lands through signage. Staff presented the
   framework of a proposed strategy in the context of ongoing research. A component of the
   signage strategy is related to the “windshield experience,” an initiative that evaluates
   opportunities to increase awareness of District lands through the driving experience. Staff
   also provided an update on the progress made with this initiative, focusing on the actions
   taken to date and the efforts required in the future to implement a pilot project on SR 471 in
   the Green Swamp Wilderness Area.

2) Multiple Use Report
   Staff presented status on a staff evaluation of potential revenue generating uses on District
   lands. This initiative consists of revising existing methods to evaluate traditional uses such
   as cattle leases and timber management zones, and also looking at potential new sources
   based on best practices and policies of other public land entities. Through a multiple-use
   management strategy, money generated from compatible revenue-generating activities is
   channeled back to support future management of District lands.

3) Legislative Session Discussion
   Staff presented an overview of the latest developments in Tallahassee regarding funding for
   the District’s land acquisition and management programs. Currently the Governor’s budget
   includes $50 million for Florida Forever, of which the District would receive $3.75 million.
   There is currently no appropriation in the Governor’s budget for the Water Management
   Lands Trust Fund (WMLTF), which historically has been the District’s primary funding
   source for its land management program. The Committee Chair encouraged BBLRC
   members and stakeholders to call their representatives and senators to encourage full
   funding of Florida Forever and the WMLTF.

4) Recreation Strategy/Get Outside! Events
   Staff made a presentation on the “Get Outside!” campaign, which is a multi-year,
   collaborative effort to promote watershed stewardship and sustainability through recreation
   on conservation lands. The campaign is based on research that focuses on what would
   make people more likely to get outside on District lands. One direction of the campaign
   promotes general public awareness that 342,000 acres of District lands are open to the
   public and provide recreation opportunities. Another focus is on localized Get Outside! Day
   events designed to introduce residents to nearby conservation lands.

5) Open Discussion – the group provided input on a number of issues including:
    Desire to keep District land as a wilderness experience
    Success of recent National Wild Turkey Federation (NWTF)/District partnership youth
      hunt
    Regional coordination of bike trails

                                               1 
 
       A point was made to be cautious not to compete with private sector when looking at
        revenue generation on public lands.
       Inventory hunting with Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to see if
        opportunities are currently maximized
       Misperception on conflict/safety between hunting and non-consumptive users

6) Topics for future meetings, based on discussion from the group:
    Hunting
    Ecosystem services
    Conclusion of multiple use analysis
    Monitoring recreation use
    Land Use and Management Plans
      o Potts Preserve
      o Flying Eagle Preserve
      o Hálpata Tastanaki Preserve
    Bike trails

                             BUDGET PRIORITIES


On August 12, 2009, the Manasota Basin Board reaffirmed its Budget Priorities
for Fiscal Year (FY) 2011. These priorities provide guidance to District staff and
the Basin Board's cooperators in identifying and scoping projects for potential
Basin Board funding. The Board agreed on the following priorities for FY2011:

      Watershed planning
      Alternative water supply development
          Strengthen/maintain regional focus
        Expand reuse to include Lake Manatee and Evers Reservoir watersheds

      Conservation
         Reduce water demand through education, technology, and incentives
      Education
         Partner with other science-based organizations

While the above priorities were developed to help ensure the most critical needs
of the Basin are addressed, the Basin Board funds a wide variety of projects to
assist in the achievement of the mission of the Southwest Florida Water
Management District. These include projects that fall within each of the District's
four areas of responsibility: water supply, flood protection, water quality, and
natural systems.
