Areas Under Development Moratorium (Water Usage)

As a result of investigation into the ground and surface water usage throughout the state, certain areas are ear-marked as having possible problems. If this occurs, the area is put under a moratorium to halt any further development, while the area is further investigated. If it is decided that the area requires water usage monitoring, then the area may be prescribed. When an area is prescribed, the linework is removed from this layer and placed in the Prescribed areas layer. This coverage contains the linework of those areas which are under moratorium. This linework is used as a base for policy and investigates projects to determine whether prescribing is appropriate. This layer is maintained as the master coverage of moratorium areas within the state.
