Where a land development company appealed the denial of its petition for detachment from a water supply district, the trial court did not err in denying the petition because the district was entitled to protection by statute based on its status as a rural water district receiving federal loan funds, the appellant lacked standing to contest the district’s agreement to purchase water from city, and the federal provision takes precedence over state detachment law.
Judgment is affirmed.
