DISCLAIMER. The above map dataset is incomplete. There are water permits/rights not included because coordinates for the location have not been established due to the lack of a proper legal description. This is often true of very old filings which did not reference a specific section, township and range. Each water permit/right shown on the map is represented by a single diversion point (pumping location) even though the permit/right may have multiple diversion points. Most of the points shown on the map are calculated values and do NOT represent a precise location of the diversion point. Any reliance on the map results is solely at the user's discretion.
|Permit||A water permit has been issued for the project which allows the holder to construct the project and put the water to beneficial use within a time frame specified on the water permit.|
|License||An inspection of the permitted water use system was conducted and a water license issued for the portion of the project that was developed.|
If two or more permits cover one water use system, they are incorporated together into one water license. Any development under the individual permits is combined into a single water license.
|Cancelled||The water use system has not been constructed or has been abandoned and/or forfeited. The Water Management Board cancelled the permit or license and it is no longer in effect.|
|Denied||The Water Management Board denied the application - a permit was not issued.|
|Deferred||The application is in deferred status until additional information becomes available either from the staff or the applicant.|
|Withdrawn||Application withdrawn by applicant prior to action on the application.|
|Future Use||A reservation of a specific amount of water within a defined area for future development.|
|Hold||An application for a water right permit to use water from a fully appropriated water source. The application is being "held" in the event water becomes available at some future date.|
|Owner Change||Denotes a water right or permit which has now been split between two or more owners.|
