Subdivision Water Supply Plans
On May 5, 1972, legislation was enacted which mandated that counties adopt subdivision regulations requiring developers to provide data, studies, and analyses for their proposed subdivision of land. The studies were to include, among other items, adequate evidence that a water supply was available and that the quality, quantity, and dependability was sufficient. In turn, the State Engineer was required to review the water supply information and issue an opinion regarding injury to other vested water rights and the adequacy of the water supply.
