2007 SB 1169 Declaration of Water from Deep Aquifers
SB1169 would have improved water resource management by granting the State Engineer jurisdiction over water more than 2500 feet below the surface. Given improvements in drilling technology, accessing deep water has become more feasible, and the public should have some authority to manage its use.
SB1169 failed on the Senate Floor (11-31).
