2006 SJM 36 Engineer Evaluation of Groundwater Transfers
Given the conflict between continued growth and limited water supplies, the issue of water exports between basins has becoming increasingly contentious. SJM 36 resolves that transfers of water from closed groundwater basins must be consistent with regional water plans, and be supported by evidence of need and lack of in-basin alternatives.
Passed the Senate, but was defeated in the House.
