Document Description
This is an existing project that received a Water Right Permit 15174 (Application A022276), dated August 30, 1965 and was licensed on June 11, 1970 (License#9488), for the storage of 90 acre feet of water with a maximum use of 87 acre feet per annum. The water is collected from the South Fork of the Noyo River tributary to the Noyo River thence the Pacific Ocean. Water is used for irrigation of 66.73 acres of pasture, stock watering and recreation. Water is to be collected from November 1 - June 1 of the following year and stored in a 190 acre-foot reservoir. During a compliance inspection conducted by the State Water Resources Control Board on August 31, 2000, it was determined that 3.27 acres were not within the authorized place of use. Consequently, Soper Company filed a water right petition to add the additional 3.27 acres to the authorized place of use. The proposed project is to add 3.27 acres of existing vineyard to the authorized place of use for Water Right Permit 15174 (Application A022276) and to add frost protection as a purpose of use.
