LAKE HAVASU CITY, Ariz. (AP) - Mohave County plans to impose a new water-conservation requirement.

An ordinance approved by the county Board of Supervisors requires that certain golf courses and developments with large green spaces or water features use treated wastewater.

The Today’s News-Herald newspaper (http://goo.gl/1nJyAY) in Lake Havasu City reports that the ordinance takes effect in 2018 and that it’ll apply only to projects within a mile of a reclaimed water source with available water.

Developments could use existing contracts for freshwater until the contracts expire but they then would have to transition to reclaimed water.

The board’s vote Monday was 4-1, with Supervisor Jean Bishop saying she wished the county had imposed the requirement decades ago.

Supervisor Buster Johnson cast the sole dissenting vote. Johnson called the ordinance unnecessary and beyond the board’s authority.
