Water Districts 71, 72A, 72D, 72F, 73, 74, 74A, 74B, 74C, 74F, 74G, 74J, 74M, 74Q, 74W, and74Z are designated as subdistricts within Water District 170.


A large water district is necessary in the Upper Salmon area to effectively administer water rights that have are licensed by IDWR or are partially decreed by the Snake River Basin Adjudication court. This multibasin district is necessary to ensure proper administration of complex, large-scale water rights and associated agreements such as the Water Rights Consent Decree with the Nez Perce Tribe and the Water Rights Agreement for Wild and Scenic Riverways (see SRBA General Provisions). Although IDWR typically creates water districts following an adjudication, the timing and structure of the Upper Salmon Water District follows largely from an agreement regarding settlement of objections to federal reserved water rights related to the Wild & Scenic Rivers Act (see Water Rights Administration for Federal Wild & Scenic Rivers).

Water District 170 is within the former Salmon-Clearwater Moratorium area. Although the moratorium was lifted and new applications are being processed in WD170, all new water right applicants in WD170 are requested to address whether their proposals invoke local public interest concerns for ESA species recovery. Providing the requested information is not mandatory. However, either providing the information OR explicitly declining to provide the information at the time you submit your application will expedite application processing.
