Bill to end “use it or lose it” water policy sailing through Legislature

By Victoria Harker | Chamber Business News

A bill to remove an outdated “use it or lose it” policy in state water law is sailing through both houses at the Legislature, a sign that progress is inching forward as Arizona prepares for a drier future. 

Meanwhile, a slate of other measures to address dwindling water supplies is seeing little traction. 

One bill that is receiving strong support from state lawmakers is HB 2675. The measure  would repair a quirk in current law that acts as a “disincentive” to conserve water, proponents said. 

Current state forfeiture law provides that a water right may be lost after five years of non-use.
