 2. Whether, under A.R.S. section 45-108, ADWR may designate Pueblo’s watersupply as adequate without evaluating potential legal conflicts between Pueblo’s groundwater pumping and BLM’s senior federal reserved water rights that could render Pueblo’s water supply legally unavailable, solely because those water rights have not been adjudicated.

 3. Whether the private attorney general doctrine is applicable and permits anaward of fees against Pueblo.
