Date Introduced 02/04/2020

Under current law, a well that is exempt from the state engineer's
administration and is used for domestic purposes is afforded a rebuttable
presumption that the use of the well will not cause material injury to

others' vested water rights or to any other existing well. If the land on
which the exempt well is located is later divided into multiple parcels, the
well loses that presumption. The bill maintains the presumption of
noninjury to vested water rights or other wells when the land on which the
well is located is later divided and use of the well continues to meet
certain requirements.
