§ 158.255  INTENT.
   (a)   This district is intended to preserve the quality and quantity of the area’s water resources so as to ensure a safe and adequate supply of drinking water for present and future generations. Restrictions shall apply to land use activities which have the potential to contaminate water resources, including aquifers and wellhead sites currently in use and those having the potential for future use as a public water supply.
   (b)   The purpose of these regulations is to prohibit certain uses which pose the greatest threat to groundwater contamination and to impose reasonable and adequate safeguards on other uses which exhibit a potential to contaminate the groundwater.
   (c)   The water source protection overlay district is an overlay whose boundaries are superimposed on all districts established by this chapter. It is not intended that these regulations interfere with, abrogate, or annul any other rules or regulations of this chapter, except that if the water source protection overlay district imposes a greater restriction than the underlying zoning district regulations, they shall control.
   (d)   Additional regulations governing land use within water source protection areas may be found within the special flood hazard area ordinance adopted by the Lincoln County Commission.
