The permit referred to in this chapter may only be issued by the Board of Supervisors where the Board, after having reviewed the potential effects, finds and determines that the permit will not result in an overdraft, will not adversely affect transmissivity within the aquifer, will not adversely affect the water table and will not result in the mining of water. The decision of the Board of Supervisors shall be final. The Board shall impose such conditions upon the permit so as to prohibit overdraft, or any other negative impacts that the Board identifies, and may impose conditions including specifically, but not limited to, a requirement for observation and/or monitoring wells that it deems necessary for the health, safety and welfare of the people of Sierra County. Notwithstanding the foregoing, the Board may issue the permit if the Board finds that the applicant has provided for mitigation which will offset any adverse effect that is determined to exist.
