Explanation of above estimates (including long-range effect):


    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
