Provides that when the SWCB determines that surface water is reasonably available for use in a ground water management area, the use of ground water other than from the surficial aquifer in such management area for a purpose other than human consumption shall be deemed to constitute waste. The bill prohibits the issuance of a ground water withdrawal permit to authorize the withdrawal of water that constitutes waste. The bill contains technical amendments.
