On October 12, 2005, California Deputy Attorney General Susan Duncan Lee issued an opinion stating that the Water Code allows agreements for the construction of oversized water facilities. 5 Ops. Cal.Atty.Gen. 307 (Oct. 12, 2005). Specifically, the opinion provides that water districts organized under the California Water District Law, Water Code § 34000 et seq., may enter into such agreements with land developers to support anticipated growth in the affected area. The opinion further provides that water districts may enter into agreements with subsequent developers to reimburse the original developers for the oversized facilities’ construction costs.
