An Adequate Water Supply <br />Determination is required of all persons who are: <br />1. applying for a building permit with either: <br />a. a proposed new structure which will have potable water or <br />b. a proposed change in the number of dwelling units for any existing structures (such as making a single <br />family structure into a duplex); or <br />c. a replacement or rebuild of a building with potable water; or <br />d. changes to a pre-existing water system that adds fixtures; or <br />2. making applications for land uses that require water, including but not limited to, long plats, short plats, binding <br />site plans, large lot subdivisions, or conditional uses.* However, an adequate water supply determination is not <br />required for long plats, short plats, binding site plans and/or large lot subdivisions when applications for such <br />are being submitted by a government or quasi-government agency or by another party when the property being <br />utilized to create new parcels as part of the long plat, short plat, binding site plan or large lot subdivision is <br />included in a purchase contract between the party and a government or quasi-government agency and the new <br />parcels will not require water. Evidence that the new parcels will not require water may be provided in the form <br />of a conservation easement, or plat notes which do not allow development which requires water, or another <br />form satisfactory to the county health officer and planning official that water will not be required for the resulting <br />land use.. <br />An Adequate Water Supply Determination shall not be required for building permits: <br />1. On lots created through formal platting and utilizing an approved Group A water system operated within an <br />incorporated areas or Master Planned Resort of Kittitas County; or <br />2. On lots that do not require a change in the water system; or <br />3. On structures which will not have potable water plumbing. <br />Kittitas County hereby finds that new uses of groundwater that are not mitigated in the Yakima River drainage basin <br />threaten to interfere with senior water rights and stream flows creating a public health and safety threat that warrants <br />elimination of all vesting under RCW 58.17.170(3) for this chapter. Kittitas County hereby eliminates all such vesting <br />pursuant to the authority granted in RCW 58.17.170(3) for this chapter.
