In the unincorporated rural portion of Northern San Luis Obispo County, there are properties that are in an area known as the Paso Robles Groundwater Basin. There are specific rules in place in that area that includes limitations on the planting of irrigated crops as well as other regulations governing water use. There are also plans in process to possibly form a special water district for that location which would have its own regulations for water use as well as the potential for fees to support the operation and governance of that district. Buyers who are purchasing a property in that area should become familiar with the above items and any proposed changes in their status. The phone numbers and web links below can aid in determining if a property is in that area.
