Establishes for each hydrological region: (1) a regional water management council consisting of the chairpersons of the drainage board and the soil and water conservation district of each county in the hydrological region; and (2) a regional water planning group consisting of the members of the regional water management council and six other members selected by majority vote of the regional water management council from individuals falling within certain interest categories. Requires each regional water planning group, every five years, to adopt a regional water resources plan for its hydrological region and to forward its regional water resources plan to the natural resources commission.
