Will Meyer (866-4976)
TITLE: CONCERNING THE EVAPORATION OF WATER FROM ON-STREAM STATE RESERVOIRS CONSTRUCTED PRIOR TO 1895.
Summary of Assessment
This bill would provide that in regard to any on-stream reservoirs originally constructed prior to 1895 pursuant to legislation approved April 16, 1891, there would be no requirement to replace depletions from evaporation. This bill would become effective upon signature of the Governor.
The Department of Natural Resources has indicated that this bill restates the original intent of the original legislation in 1891. This bill would not affect any agency of the state, or unit of local government. Therefore, this bill is assessed as having no fiscal impact.
