Water Rights Fee Law

Division 2 Water

Part 2 Appropriation of Water

Chapter 8. Water Rights Fee

Article 2. Collection and Enforcement

Section 1540

1540. Allocation of fee to other contractors. If the board determines that the person or entity on whom a fee or expense is imposed will not pay the fee or expense based on the fact that the fee payer has sovereign immunity under Section 1560, the board may allocate the fee or expense, or an appropriate portion of the fee or expense, to persons or entities who have contracts for the delivery of water from the person or entity on whom the fee or expense was initially imposed. The allocation of the fee or expense to these contractors does not affect ownership of any permit, license, or other water right, and does not vest any equitable title in the contractors.
