Fiscal Note Summary

Effect this measure will have on costs and revenues of state government.

    This proposed legislation will have significant start up costs that include land acquisition, construction, hardware and software costs. In addition to these costs, we anticipate the bill will require two full time (2 fte) Environmental Resource Specialist III's to track and maintain the data and monitor that the system is functioning properly. As written, there is no revenue available to fund this legislation.

    The above estimate of $1,354,728 is the cost of one withdrawal site. The total cost to the state to implement this bill would vary depending upon the number of withdrawal sites.
    
    We currently have 51 individual Horizontal Well water supply withdrawal sites spread over 18 counties. We would anticipate the need for 2 regional withdrawal locations in each of the 18 counties for a total of 36 sites.
    
    TOTAL START UP ASSUMING 36 SITES = $42,480,000
    
    TOTAL ANNUAL ORERATION ASSUMING 36 SITES = $2,551,128
