Making Applications Tamara Prue Application Agenda Go over the most common types of applications (15 min) Discuss water right policy by area (5 min) Introduce the Public Land Survey system (10 min) Discuss duty, diversion, and other use

calculations (20 min) Make an application map (15 min) Questions Common Applications

Elements Common to all Applications The applicants name, address and ownership interest; Source of water; o Specific spring, stream, or underground well

Flow (cfs), or volume (acre-feet) of water to be diverted; Point of diversion (POD); o Where the water will be diverted from the natural source Beneficial use of the water; Place of use (POU); o Location where the beneficial use will occur

Application map, to identify specific parcels on which the beneficial use will occur; Signatures of all applicants/owners or legal agents; Filing fee. Application to Appropriate

Creates a new water right. All areas have limitations on the amount of water that can be appropriated. Applications to Appropriate must be completed through the certification process, by submission of proof, or the application will lapse. Temporary Application

to Appropriate Creates a new water right. Amounts of water are typically based on policies for the area. This water right will lapse one year after initial approval.

Filing of proof is not required Fixed-Time Application to Appropriate Creates a new water right. This water right will typically be approved for no more than 14 years.

Filing of proof is not required The Fixed-Time period may be extended Exchange Application Exchanges are filed when an applicant has a legal contract to exchange water. Creates a new water right filing.

The contract is the basis of the water right. Exchange applicants are required to submit proof by the proof-due date. Permanent Change Application Filed to modify some or all of a water rights attributes.

This application uses the total flow represented by the base water right(s). The proof will have to be completed to Temporary Change Application

Temporary changes expire one year from the date of approval, and revert back to the original water rights description. This application may or may not use all of the available water under the subject water right. Temporary changes cannot be extended and do not require filing of proof. Water Right Policy By Area

Helpful Database Tools Policies by Water Right Area is located on the bottom right of the Divisions home page. This will provide a basic overview for each water right area, including information

that may be helpful for an applicant to review before filing an application. www.waterrights.utah.gov Surface and Ground Water : Valley locations are open for ground-water applications, which are limited to the domestic use of one family, the irrigation of .25 acre, and 10 livestock. Intro to Public Land Survey

o S1/2 of the NW1/4 and the S1/2 of the NE1/4 Water Right Calculations Common Terms Cubic Feet per Second (CFS) oA unit of measure used to quantify the rate of flow from a water source

oHeight (feet) * Width (feet) * Velocity (feet per second) Acre-Feet (AF) oA unit of volume defined as one acre of surface area to a depth of one foot. oDepth of Water (feet) * Area (acres) Duty Calculations Irrigation o Acres * Duty = AF per Year o Irrigation duty values vary

by area Domestic o Full time = 0.45 AF per Year o Part time = 0.25 AF per Year Livestock (ELU) o 1 ELU = 0.028 AF per year o 1 ELU = 1 Cow or Horse o 1 ELU = 5 Pigs, Sheep, or Goats Sample Problem #1

A rancher wants to start a farm near Dugway, Utah (area 16). How much water does he need for 5 acres of irrigation, 50 cattle year-round, and a full-time home? The irrigation duty in Dugway is 4 acre-feet/acre o 5 acres * 4 acre-feet/acre = 20 acre-feet o 50 cattle * 0.028 acre-foot = 1.4 acre-feet o 1 full-time home = 0.45 acre-foot Total diversion = 21.85 acre-feet Sample Problem #2

A rancher has a water right for 300 cattle. How many sheep could he provide for with this water right? o 300 cattle * 5 = 1500 sheep Sample Problem #3 A developer wants to build a 10 lot subdivision in Delta, Utah (area 68). Each lot is supposed to have enough water

for 0.25 acre of irrigation, 2 horses, and a full-time home. How much diversion will the water right need to have? o Each lot requires 0.25 acre * 4 acre-feet/acre = 1.0 acre-foot 2 horses * 0.028 acre-foot = 0.056 acre-foot Full-time home = 0.45 acre-foot Total of 1.506 acre-feet o Total project requires 1.506 * 10 lots = 15.06 acre-feet Sample Problem #4 A farmer has a water right in Brigham City (area 29) that serves 100 cattle year-round. He wants to change the water right to supply one full-time home, one part-time home, 10 horses, and irrigation for his yard. What is the

maximum area (in acres) that can be irrigated, after the other uses are accounted for? o 150 cattle * 0.028 acre-foot = 4.2 acre-feet o Full-time home = 0.45 acre foot o Part-time home = 0.25 acre foot o 10 horses * 0.028 acre-foot = 0.28 acre foot o 4.2 acre-feet - 0.98 acre-foot = 3.22 acre-feet 3.22 acre-feet / 4 acre-feet per acre = 0.805 acre Diversion vs Depletion Diversion is the water removed from the source to be used oE.g.

Diverting 4.0 AF of water to irrigate 1.0 acre of land Depletion is the amount of water that is consumed after application. oE.g. After diverting 4.0 AF of water to irrigate 1.0 acre only 2.0 AF of water returns to the natural water system. When evaluating Change Applications the State Engineer looks at the historic values for both diversion and depletion.

oNeither value can be enlarged. Sample Problem #5 A water right owner has a water right for 3.0 acres of irrigation (duty is 4 feet per acre). He wants to change the use to include 50 cattle. How many acre-feet of water will he be able to divert after the change? Assume the rate of depletion for irrigation is 53%. o Establish historic diversion and depletion 3.0 acres * duty of 4 = 12.0 acre-feet (diversion) 12.0 acre-feet * 53% = 6.36 acre-feet (depletion) o Figure proposed uses

50 cattle * 0.028 acre-foot = 1.4 acre-feet (100% consumptive) 6.36 acre-feet 1.4 acre-feet = 4.96 acre-feet depletion left 4.96 acre-feet / 53% = 9.36 acre-feet remaining diversion 9.36 acre-feet / duty of 4 = 2.34 acres of irrigation 1.4 acre-feet + 9.36 acre-feet = 10.76 acre-feet of diversion Summary of Diversion and Depletion Limits Historic Use Diversion Rate of Amount of Depleti Depletion on

Irrigation: 3.0 acres 12.0 acrefeet 53% Totals Proposed Use 12.0 acrefeet Diversion Irrigation: 2.34 acres

9.36 acrefeet 6.36 acre-feet 6.36 acre-feet Rate of Amount of Depleti Depletion on 53% 4.96 acre-feet Livestock: 50 ELU 1.4 acre-feet 100% 1.4 acre-feet Totals

6.36 acrefeet 10.76 acrefeet Diversion Based Change Applications Why it feels like a haircut. Historic Use Diversion Rate of Amount of Depleti Depletion on

Irrigation: 3.0 acres 12.0 acrefeet 53% Totals Proposed Use 12.0 acrefeet Diversion Irrigation: 2.65 acres

10.6 acrefeet 6.36 acre-feet 6.36 acre-feet Rate of Amount of Depleti Depletion on 53% 5.62 acre-feet Livestock: 50 ELU 1.4 acre-feet 100% 1.4 acre-feet Totals

7.02 acre- 12.0 acre- o In this scenario depletion is exceeded by 0.66 acre-foot feet feet Making an Application Map Using the Divisions Database to Get a POD
