Mr. J.E. Jensen (Permittee) currently holds Permit 19572 (Application 28156) authorizing diversion of up to 20 acre-feet of water per annum (afa) to storage in two onstream 10 acre-foot reservoirs, Reservoir 1 and Reservoir 4. Permittee filed a temporary permit application on April 3, 2006, under Water Code section 1425, seeking approval to continue diverting water to storage in Reservoir 1 during the period of April 10, 2006 through April 19, 2006. Applicant claims that due to unusual weather patterns this year, only about 3 acre-feet of water was stored in Reservoir 1 as of March 31, 2006, and there is an urgent, but temporary, opportunity to divert up to an additional 7 acre-feet in the reservoir to meet irrigation needs in the point of diversion later this year.
