    3         Between lines 243 and 244
    4  insert:
    5         Section 3. Paragraph (c) of subsection (6) of section
    6  163.3177, Florida Statutes, is amended to read:
    7         163.3177 Required and optional elements of comprehensive
    8  plan; studies and surveys.—
    9         (6) In addition to the requirements of subsections (1)-(5),
   10  the comprehensive plan shall include the following elements:
   11         (c) A general sanitary sewer, solid waste, drainage,
   12  potable water, and natural groundwater aquifer recharge element
   13  correlated to principles and guidelines for future land use,
   14  indicating ways to provide for future potable water, drainage,
   15  sanitary sewer, solid waste, and aquifer recharge protection
   16  requirements for the area. The element may be a detailed
   17  engineering plan including a topographic map depicting areas of
   18  prime groundwater recharge.
   19         1. Each local government shall address in the data and
   20  analyses required by this section those facilities that provide
   21  service within the local government’s jurisdiction. Local
   22  governments that provide facilities to serve areas within other
   23  local government jurisdictions shall also address those
   24  facilities in the data and analyses required by this section,
   25  using data from the comprehensive plan for those areas for the
   26  purpose of projecting facility needs as required in this
   27  subsection. For shared facilities, each local government shall
   28  indicate the proportional capacity of the systems allocated to
   29  serve its jurisdiction.
   30         2. The element shall describe the problems and needs and
   31  the general facilities that will be required for solution of the
   32  problems and needs, including correcting existing facility
   33  deficiencies. The element shall address coordinating the
   34  extension of, or increase in the capacity of, facilities to meet
   35  future needs while maximizing the use of existing facilities and
   36  discouraging urban sprawl; conserving potable water resources;
   37  and protecting the functions of natural groundwater recharge
   38  areas and natural drainage features.
   39         3. Within 18 months after the governing board approves an
   40  updated regional water supply plan, the element must incorporate
   41  the alternative water supply project or projects selected by the
   42  local government from those identified in the regional water
   43  supply plan pursuant to s. 373.709(2)(a) or proposed by the
   44  local government under s. 373.709(8)(b). If a local government
   45  is located within two water management districts, the local
   46  government shall adopt its comprehensive plan amendment within
   47  18 months after the later updated regional water supply plan.
   48  The element must identify such alternative water supply projects
   49  and traditional water supply projects and conservation and reuse
   50  necessary to meet the water needs identified in s. 373.709(2)(a)
   51  within the local government’s jurisdiction and include a work
   52  plan, covering at least a 10-year planning period, for building
   53  public, private, and regional water supply facilities, including
   54  development of alternative water supplies, which are identified
   55  in the element as necessary to serve existing and new
   56  development. The work plan shall be updated, at a minimum, every
   57  5 years within 18 months after the governing board of a water
   58  management district approves an updated regional water supply
   59  plan. Local governments, public and private utilities, regional
   60  water supply authorities, special districts, and water
   61  management districts are encouraged to cooperatively plan for
   62  the development of multijurisdictional water supply facilities
   63  that are sufficient to meet projected demands for established
   64  planning periods, including the development of alternative water
   65  sources to supplement traditional sources of groundwater and
   66  surface water supplies.
   67         4. A local government that does not own, operate, or
   68  maintain its own water supply facilities, including but not
   69  limited to wells, treatment facilities, and distribution
   70  infrastructure, and is served by a public water utility with a
   71  permitted allocation of greater than 300 million gallons per day
   72  is not required to amend its comprehensive plan in response to
   73  an updated regional water supply plan or to maintain a work plan
   74  if any such local government’s usage of water constitutes less
   75  than 1 percent of the public water utility’s total permitted
   76  allocation. However, any such local government is required to
   77  cooperate with, and provide relevant data to, any local
   78  government or utility provider that provides service within its
   79  jurisdiction, and to keep its general sanitary sewer, solid
   80  waste, potable water, and natural groundwater aquifer recharge
   81  element updated in accordance with s. 163.3191.
