(from Ch. 5, par. 1605)
Water Conflict Resolution.
In the event that a land occupier or person
proposes to develop a new point of withdrawal, and
the new point is a high-capacity well, the land occupier or person shall notify
the District before construction of the well begins. The District
shall in turn notify other local
units of government with water systems who may be impacted by
the proposed withdrawal. The District shall then review with
the assistance of the Illinois State Water Survey and the State
Geological Survey the proposed
point of withdrawal's effect upon other users of the water.
The review shall be completed within 30 days of receipt of the notice.
The findings of such reviews shall be made public.
