HF 1183: Legacy Amendment Investments

This year’s Legacy Amendment bill includes nearly $26 million in funding for groundwater protection, including investments in monitoring for pesticides, nitrates, viruses, and a variety of contaminants. It provided money to help the state monitor and protect groundwater levels, better ensuring an ample supply for future generations. It gave the state the money and authority to designate “groundwater protection areas” throughout the state, particularly in areas where the supplies are severely depleted by drought and overuse.
