If Proof of Beneficial Use was submitted to IDWR in connection with your licensed water right on or prior to the commencement of the CSRBA (November 12, 2008), and your licensed water use is not deferrable, then filing a claim for an existing water license (or prior decree, if issued prior to the commencement of the CSRBA) is required.
If you submitted Proof of Beneficial Use on your licensed water right to IDWR after November 12, 2008, then you do not need to file a claim for that licensed water right in the adjudication process.
If changes to parts of a licensed or prior-decreed water right have occurred, the adjudication will result in an updated water right description. IDWR makes a thorough examination and notifies any current owner about old recorded water rights. In the rare cases when a property owner ceased using and exercising a prior water right, the adjudication will clear these once-existing water rights from IDWR's inventory. Any unclaimed water right that is not deferrable will cease to exist once the adjudication is complete.
