  • Notice of Change of Water Right Ownership – Use this form to notify IDWR of a change in ownership of a water right, statutory claim or adjudication claim.
  • Assignment of Permit – IDWR no longer accepts assignments of permits executed after June 30, 2022.  Idaho Code § 55-616(1), created by HB 748 in 2022, states that a “transfer of real property passes appurtenant water rights decreed…, permitted or licensed by the department…, or established by the constitutional method of appropriation, and that are owned by the seller and are not reserved by the seller in the instrument of conveyance.” A new permit owner should submit a Notice of Change in Water Right Ownership form with documentation of the conveyance of the permit to the new owner.
