46-2A-20. Term limitation on water withdrawal from Madison formation in certain counties. Notwithstanding §§ 46-1-14 and 46-2A-7, no water permit for construction of works to withdraw water from the Madison formation in Butte, Fall River, Custer, Lawrence, Meade and Pennington counties may be issued for a term of more than twenty years, unless the Water Management Board determines, based upon the evidence presented at a hearing that:
(1) Sufficient information is available to determine whether any significant adverse hydrologic effects on the supply of water in the Madison formation would result if the proposed withdrawal were approved; and
(2) The information, whether provided by the applicant or by other means, shows that there is a reasonable probability that issuance of the proposed permit would not have a significant adverse effect on nearby Madison formation wells and springs.
