State records show there aren’t as many farmers pumping more water for irrigation than they are allowed but it’s still a problem. 114 water right holders received a first-offense warning of civil penalties so far this year for over-pumping in 2013. Another 70 irrigators were warned a second, and, for a few, a third time for overpumping, and issued a $1,000 fine.
