Accurately assess the quality and quantity of available groundwater and determine safe yields to assure future water availability. Much of the groundwater in the Missouri Region is in unconnected glacial aquifers and difficult to access for the entire region.
Over the next 50 years, there needs to be an adequate, sustainable and affordable quality water supply in the Missouri Region, while protecting Tribal water rights and sacred and cultural sites. All government agencies, local through state, shall vigorously uphold and enforce all water conservation and management rules and regulations throughout the state. Assure any future water transfers from the Missouri River be based upon the protection of the priority of water supplies in the Missouri region, protection of private property rights, protection of cultural and heritage sites and consideration of environmental impacts. Ensure any beneficiary of transferred water would have exhausted all other alternatives, including crop types, irrigation practices and all other appropriate conservation measures.
