In one of the most regulated states in the nation, no laws apply to groundwater pumping, which means some people go dry. What independence?

Towards the end of the last drought, there was a local initiative to give priority for water hook-ups to people dependent on wells before new hook-ups were given to new development since many had their wells go dry or nearly so. That drought was not classified to be as severe as this one.
