Document Description
The USBR holds one water right License and three water right Permits associated with the Friant diversion of the CVP (License 1986, Permits 11886 and 11887). The authorized place of use for License 1986 and Permit 11886 does not include municipal use as an authorized purpose of use. Permit 11887 includes municipal use as an authorized purpose of use; consequently, the USBR's petition is to add 2,170 acres to the authorized place of use for Permit 11887 and within this expanded place of use will allow municipal use as a purpose of use. USBR has stated that the expansion of the place of use to include the 2,170 acres will not result in any increase in the volume in total diversions from the San Joaquin River and will not result in changes to the Friant operations under License 1986 and Permits 11886 and 11887.
