IMPORTANT WATER RIGHTS INFORMATION YOUR FILING DEADLINE IS: July 1, 2022 FAILURE TO FILE A REQUIRED NOTICE OF CLAIM WILL RESULT IN A DETERMINATION BY THE COURT THAT THE WATER RIGHT NO LONGER EXISTS. IN THE DISTRICT COURT OF THE FIFTH JUDICIAL DISTRICT OF THE STATE OF IDAHO, IN AND FOR THE COUNTY OF TWIN FALLS In Re: The General Adjudication of Civil No. 00-69576 Rights to the Use of Water from the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basins Water System. COMMENCEMENT NOTICE Property Owners within Boundary and Bonner Counties within IDWR's Administrative Basin 97 TO: ALL PERSONS OWNING RIGHTS TO THE USE OF WATER WITHIN THE CLARK FORK-PEND OREILLE RIVER BASINS WATER SYSTEM YOU ARE HEREBY NOTIFIED THAT: On June 15, 2021, the Fifth Judicial District Court in and for the County of Twin Falls issued an order commencing a general adjudication of water rights within the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basins water system in Idaho. A general adjudication is a court case which will result in a decree determining all water rights within a water system. The purpose of the adjudication is to obtain an inventory of water rights to assure proper delivery of water in times of shortage and to provide certainty to property owners. The purpose of this notice is to inform you of the commencement of the adjudication and your legal responsibilities at this stage of the adjudication. GENERAL REQUIREMENT TO FILE A NOTICE OF CLAIM Idaho Code § 42-1409 requires that a Notice of Claim be filed for all water rights within the boundaries of the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basins water system in the State of Idaho, except for certain water rights specifically excluded by law. "All water rights within the boundaries of the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basin water system in the State of Idaho" includes rights to the use of water from any water source, including streams, any springs, lakes, ground water, developed water, waste water, or any other source. A map showing the boundaries of the water system is included at the end of this notice. The Notice of Claim must be filed with the Idaho Department of Water Resources ("IDWR"). A Notice of Claim must be filed for all water rights based upon state law by the deadline above, except for de minimis domestic and stockwater claims as described below. Water rights based upon state law include historic use rights (established by the diversion and application of water to a beneficial use), decreed rights, licensed rights, or water right permits if proof of beneficial use was filed on or before June 15, 2021. A Notice of Claim or negotiated agreement must be filed for all water rights based upon federal law by the deadline above, unless an alternative filing schedule is adopted by the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basins Adjudication ("CFPRBA") District Court. DE MINIMIS (SMALL) DOMESTIC AND STOCKWATER CLAIMS Water users of a small domestic and/or stockwater ("D&S") right, as defined by Idaho Code §§ 42-111 & 42-1401A, may elect to file a Notice of Claim now or defer (postpone) the filing until a later time in this proceeding. The fee for filing a Notice of Claim with IDWR for a D&S water right at this time is $25. IDWR recommends filing a claim for a small D&S water right now and not deferring. The owner of a D&S water right who elects to defer the filing of a Notice of Claim until a later time will be required to have the water right adjudicated prior to the water right being distributed by a watermaster and/or before an application for change of the water right may be filed with IDWR. Water right holders who file a motion with the district court at a later date to have the water right adjudicated, will be required to pay their own cost of serving notice of the motion, advertising, and all costs incurred by IDWR for investigation and preparation of a report to be filed with the court, all of which will exceed the $25 filing fee. A claimant of a D&S water right will be bound by the terms of any decrees entered in this adjudication (including the limitation on D&S water rights that may be adjudicated at a later date) regardless of whether or not the claimant files a notice of claim for the D&S water right at this time. Claimants should be certain their water use qualifies for the deferral procedure for D&S claims before deciding not to file a notice of claim at this time. EXCEPTIONS TO GENERAL REQUIREMENT TO FILE NOTICE OF CLAIM A Notice of Claim is not required to be filed for water right permits for which proof of beneficial use was filed after June 15, 2021. The director of IDWR may, at a later date, require holders of such permits to file a Notice of Claim. If the director does issue such an order, the permit holder will be notified by mail. A Notice of Claim is not required for a water right that is still in the application for permit stage. A water user need not file a Notice of Claim where the water user is not the owner of the water right. A Notice of Claim is not required for any person who receives water solely by virtue of ownership of shares of stock in, or by being located within the boundary of a water delivery organization, if the water delivery organization holds legal title to the water right and if the water delivery organization files a Notice of Claim. Examples of water delivery organizations include, but are not limited to, cities, water utility districts or companies, and irrigation districts. FEES AND DEADLINES FOR FILING A NOTICE OF CLAIM Idaho Code § 42-1414 requires each person who files a Notice of Claim to pay a filing fee. Failure to pay the fee will result in the rejection of the Notice of Claim. The persons receiving this Notice have property within Boundary and Bonner Counties and within IDWR's Administrative Basin 97. The deadline for filing a Notice of Claim for water rights in your area is July 1, 2022. A Notice of Claim filed after this date may be accepted prior to the filing of the director's report with the court, but failure to file a Notice of Claim by the established deadline may result in the assessment of a late fee of $50.00 or 15% of the original filing fee, whichever is greater. Idaho Code § 42-1409A imposes substantial restrictions on the filing of amended or late Notices of Claim. NOTICE OF CLAIM FORMS AND INSTRUCTIONS A Notice of Claim must be filed online at www.idwr.idaho.gov or on forms provided by IDWR. When filing at an IDWR regional office please bring a description of the property with Township, Range, Section and Quarter-Quarters, or the county parcel number.
