Water Rights Enforcement: Administrative Civil Liabilities (ACLs)

The Board can impose a financial penalty on water rights violations. This penalty is officially called an Administrative Civil Liability or ACL. First, the Board issues a draft ACL. Violators have 20 days to request a hearing before the Board issues a final ACL. Administrative Hearings Page.
