Under new law, state board can impose $1,000 fee 

Under state legislation passed last year, some property owners will face hefty fines beginning this summer if they do not file statements documenting their water use, according to the State Water Resources Control Board (SWRCB).

Senate Bill 8 (SBX7 8), which requires more property owners to file statements documenting their use of either stream or surface water with the state, was the first topic of discussion during a Tuesday morning workshop on water rights and responsibilities sponsored by the Mendocino Winegrape and Wine Commission, the Mendocino Farm Bureau and the University of California Cooperative Extension.
