Staff recommends approval of the agreement with SMW GeoSciences, Inc. to provide groundwater modeling in support of renewal of CUP No. 94.
At this phase of the CUP renewal process, the City is required to review the potential for impacts to existing legal users, established Minimum Flows and Levels, wetlands, water bodies, spring flows, and water quality of the Floridan aquifer. The methods for doing so involve the use of approved groundwater models and review of the parameters upon which the models are based. This is highly specialized technical work. This agreement provides the required technical services.
1. Approve the agreement as presented, or;
2. Such alternative action as the Commission may deem appropriate
