Water Resources. It is the announced policy of the State of Arizona, that groundwater resources be conserved and therefore, with respect to any landscaped area of the Demised Premises are required by the Restrictions, Tenant will use only those plants and planting materials that have been approved for use in the Research Park by the Arizona Department of Water Resources. Upon request, Landlord will furnish Tenant with a listing of such approved plants and planting materials. Furthermore, Tenant will not allocate more than 15% of its landscaped area to turf. Furthermore, no more than 20% of the turfed area developed by Tenant will be overseeded with any seed variety during the winter dormancy period for Bermuda grass. Furthermore, no outdoor water bodies such as fountains and reflecting ponds will be installed by Tenant. For purposes of this Section 42, "landscaped area" shall mean all areas of the Demised Premises not improved with Improvements, parking areas and driveways.
Water Resources. The Except as provided in Section 2.08 above, the intent of this Agreement is to provide for the pooling of the water resources of ICWD and Polk County so that ICWD may have access to sufficient water resources to provide long-term, safe and reliable water service, on an equal basis, to Polk County Customers and ICWD Customers on the same terms and conditions. To that end:
Water Resources. Draining, filling, dredging, diking, damming or other alteration, development or manipulation of watercourses, subsurface water, springs, ponds and wetlands is prohibited except as reasonably necessary in connection with (i) the maintenance, replacement, development and expansion of water storage and delivery systems allowed under Section 5.4.5, and (ii) the preservation, restoration and enhancement of natural resources allowed under Section 5.5.5. Subject to the limitations of this Section 5.5.2, GRANTOR reserves all rights and entitlements to use of surface and subsurface water as may exist under state or federal law.
Water Resources. Grantor may use, maintain, establish, and construct, water sources, water courses, and water bodies, including ponds, on the Property for the uses permitted by this Easement, provided that Grantor does not significantly impair or disturb the natural course of the surface water drainage or runoff flowing over the Property. Grantor may alter the non-channelized, natural flow of water over the Property in order to improve drainage of agricultural or forest soils, reduce soil erosion, or improve the agricultural or forest management potential of the Property, provided such alteration is consistent with the purposes of this Easement and is carried out consistent with the Whole Farm Plan. Any stream work, including but not limited to, gravel removal, streambank or bed disturbance or stabilization, or bridge and culvert construction, shall only be undertaken with prior approval of the Grantee, except for emergency work resulting from natural events beyond the control of the Grantor, such as the need to restore transportation routes, maintain farm operations, and to protect health, safety, and property.
Water Resources. No change to water resources as described in section 3.8 above is expected under this alternative. Houston toad conservation on non-Federal lands would not necessarily be a part of the considerations in any existing water resource management. Protection of Houston toad habitat would be incidental to existing water resource uses or the actions of individual landowners.
Water Resources. No direct impacts to water resources within the covered area are anticipated from the approval of the programmatic Agreement or the issuance of a section 10(a)(1)(A) Enhancement of Survival Permit. Indirect impacts of implementation of the programmatic Agreement may result in improvements to local water quality and quantity at specific sites, depending on a particular landowner’s conservation commitments for wetland restoration. However, such activities are not expected to affect groundwater supplies.
Water Resources. Subject to the impervious surface limitation referenced in Exhibit C, paragraph 11, Grantor reserves the right to maintain, enhance, and develop water resources on the Protected Property for permitted agricultural uses, fish and wildlife uses, domestic needs, and private recreation, in compliance with the ALE Plan. Permitted uses include, but are not limited to, the following: to locate, construct, repair, and maintain irrigation systems; to develop stock watering facilities; and the right to restore and enhance existing water resources. Further, Grantor retains the right to maintain and enhance the existing pond located within Development Area #6, depicted in Exhibit E, and to develop new ponds only as necessary to carry out agricultural purposes, provided that Grantor must obtain prior written approval of NRCS pursuant to Section IV. Such pond sites shall be limited in scope and impact to provide maximum protection of the agricultural soils. In addition, Grantor and Grantee acknowledge that Grantor may, in the future, work with governmental agencies to restore wetlands, stream channels, and riparian habitat on the Protected Property. Subject to the approval of Grantee and NRCS pursuant to Section IV, all such activities, including the use of heavy machinery, temporary diversion of surface waters, impoundment of water, creation of new channels, are permissible provided all necessary permits have been obtained and the surface is promptly restored after construction has ceased, noxious weeds are controlled, and vegetation is reclaimed and self-sustaining. Future wetland and stream enhancement and development are permitted where needed to achieve bona fide stream and wetland habitat restoration and functionality. Any restoration work undertaken must be accomplished with limited impacts to, and full restoration of, the Conservation Values and in compliance with the ALE Plan.
Water Resources. Surface and sub-surface water resources and facilities including ditches, drainage improvements, springs, pipes, ponds and troughs may be maintained and improved, but new water resources and facilities may be constructed only upon prior written approval of the Conservancy, which will not be unreasonably withheld.
Water Resources. The Engineer shall perform a desktop and field analysis of water resources and provide a draft and final Water Resources technical report including identification of jurisdictional wetlands, streams and Waters of the U.S. If the analysis combined with potential project impacts indicate permitting beyond a non-reporting nationwide permit (NWP) is necessary, the delineation of all potential Waters of the U.S., including wetlands, throughout the project area, would be conducted under a supplemental work authorization.
