Bill Summary

Republican river water conservation district - expansion of boundaries - board of directors - composition and meeting schedule. The boundaries of the Republican river water conservation district are currently established by statute as certain counties and portions of counties that are within the Republican river basin. The act expands the boundaries by including the district areas where groundwater pumping depletes the flow of the Republican river as contemplated by applicable United States supreme court case law. The composition of the district's board of directors is adjusted accordingly.

Current law requires the Republican river water conservation district board of directors to conduct regular quarterly meetings in January, April, July, and October. The act changes these months to February, May, August, and November.

The act requires that each director of the board of directors, at the time of the director's appointment, must be a resident of Colorado; a resident of a county that is, in whole or in part, within the boundaries of the district; and an owner of real property that is within the boundaries of the district from which the director is appointed, as well as within the county or ground water management district from which the director is appointed.
