Interlocal Agreement for Watershed Atlas Project


Orange County Government has entered into an agreement with the University of South Florida (USF) Board of Trustees for the internet maintenance and support services for the internet-based Orange County Water Atlas. The Water Atlas provides citizens, scientists, professionals and planners with comprehensive and current water quality data, hydrologic records, and a water resource document library. The information is presented with interactive graphs, tables, maps and graphics in a format that is understandable to all users. The City currently performs water quality monitoring on 90 lakes. Per Rule 62-40.540, F.A.C., the Florida Department of Environmental Protection requires all governmental agencies to submit their water quality data into their central repository database, STORET(STORage and RETrieval database), for water quality evaluations. Participation in the Water Atlas program will reduce staff time needed to update City data into Florida STORET, in addition to simplifying the tasks of providing data for distribution through public access to the Water Atlas. Orange County has agreed to pay USF the sum of $65,000 per year for four (4) years for the annual maintenance of the project; the City’s proportionate share of that annual maintenance cost is $20,000. The term of the Interlocal Agreement is four years and obligates the City to pay the first year sum, retroactive, of $20,000, and the second year sum of $20,000 within thirty days of the commencement date of this Agreement. The third and fourth payments will be delivered on the anniversary of the Agreement.  Note that the first payment will be $40,000 for FY14-15 and FY15-16 as this contract started June 1, 2015. 

Fiscal & Efficiency Data: Funding is available from STW0005_C.
