Subject: Water Management Districts Water Resources Act of 1972
This bill implements the Water Resources Act of 1972 by
prescribing specific boundaries of the water management districts.
It follows the exact boundaries recommended by the
Governor and Cabinet acting as head of the Department of
Natural Resources and includes their recommendations for
boundaries for six interim districts to be established for
the first two years.
Exact descriptions of boundaries for the six interim
districts and for the five final districts are set out in
It also contains clarification and some changes to the

the bill is read.
Pages 6 through 34 and Pages 36 through 72 contain nothing
but legal descriptions. Maps of these descriptions are avail-
