2010 Legislature: Water Banking

Representative Jack Draxler has introduced a bill that would allow the banking of water rights. The bill is numbered House Bill 84 (HB 84). The bill would allow local districts to bank water. Counties or portions of counties that are not within the boundary of a water conservancy district may also bank water. Representative Draxler has been working on this bill with Cache County, who is worried about losing forfeited water rights in the Bear River to Idaho water users.
