46A-19-13. Task force boundary recommendations--Pilot water management plan. The task force shall meet between July 1, 2015, and December 31, 2015, to recommend to the 2016 Legislature the specific boundaries of the river basin natural resource districts established by this chapter. The recommended boundaries of the districts shall follow as closely as possible the hydrologic patterns of the river basins. However, the task force recommendations may follow existing boundaries of political subdivisions or voting precincts, wherever feasible. Municipalities of the first class may not be included in a district. The specific boundaries shall be established by the Legislature in statute. The task force shall also recommend to the Legislature a procedure by which the initial terms of council members shall be staggered.
The task force shall work with the local governments in the Red River and Minnesota River Basin Natural Resource District to establish a pilot water management plan for the district that could be used as a guide for a water management plan in each of the remaining river basin natural resource districts.
