This bill proposes to require the isolation distance for a new potable water supply and wastewater system to either be located on the property on which the supply or system is located or be authorized in writing by the owner of any property on which the isolation distance will encroach. Alternatively, if the permit applicant cannot meet the required isolation distance, the permit applicant may waive application of the isolation distances provided that certain conditions are satisfied. Upon waiver of the isolation distances, the permit applicant or subsequent property owner will be prohibited from preventing the installation of a potable water supply or wastewater system on adjacent property within the normally applicable isolation distance.

Status: Read for the first time on 1/23/15 and referred to the Committee on Fish, Wildlife & Water Resources.
