The proposed rulemaking would limit the length of the contract for the purchase of water to one year; clarify that contracts for Domestic, Municipal, and Industrial water must terminate by the last Saturday of the calendar year in which the contract was entered. All other contracts shall terminate at a date determined by the interested parties. The amended rule would also clarify that all contracts for water would remain subject to §303.22. This would maintain the requirement that allocations of water be put to beneficial use within two consecutive calendar years; otherwise, the account will be reduced to zero as per §303.22.
