Microsoft Windows XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 3; ESRI ArcCatalog 188.8.131.520Places of Use (POU) represent where water is used from live flow, either surface water or ground water (ie springs, stream or a well), and put to beneficial use under a water right. A water right (WR) must have at least one use, and may have many uses. Uses may be consumptive, such as irrigation or domestic, or non-consumptive, such as power or instream flow. The WRURL attribute links to the water right report. For each WR, any or all points of diversion (POD) can serve any or all uses.
Shapes for POUs were initially developed from GCDB as QQ or QQQ polygons based on the POU legal description. Over time, better locational information updates the POU shapes.
A water right (WR) can be in one or more of six processes or
Application for a new WR or transfer.
Permit for applicant to develop the water use.
License through which IDWR has approved final configuration and amounts.
Claim is a WR or Beneficial Use which has been claimed in an adjudication.
Recommendation is what IDWR recommends to the court during an adjudication. A recommendation, when approved by the court, is decreed and supercedes its License, if one previously existed.
Transfer of a portion of the WR or claim. Generally through a change of ownership, or change in one or more elements of the WR or claim.To represent general locations of licensed or decreed places of use in Idaho.IDWRCurrentLicensed or Decreed Places of Usevector digital dataDeveloped primarily by IDWR's Water Rights or Adjudication Sections.publication dateContinually-114.364831-114.35991342.55552342.551842IdahoNoneNone322 E Front Stmailing and physical addressBoiseID83720USAmailing and physical addressMichael Ciscellidaho Department of Water ResourcesSenior GIS Analyst208email@example.com AM - 5 PM MTIDWRUnclassifiedMicrosoft Windows XP Version 5.1 (Build 2600) Service Pack 3; ESRI ArcCatalog 184.108.40.2060WR_POU2470049.792470451.761261744.871261337.841-114.364831-114.35991342.55552342.5518421FGDC Content Standards for Digital Geospatial MetadataFGDC-STD-001-1998local timemailing and physical addressBoiseID83720322 E Front StUSA208-287-4915Senior GIS Analyst208firstname.lastname@example.org:00 AM - 5:00 PM MTMichael CiscellIdaho Department of Water Resources20090504NoneNoneUnclassifiedISO 19115 Geographic Information - MetadataDIS_ESRI1.0datasetDownloadable Data208-287-4915mailing and physical address322 E Front StBoiseID83720USAIdaho Department of Water Resources002file://\\A017\PublicFolders\MCiscell\A028_DATA\Metadata\SDE_Layers.gdbLocal Area NetworkFile Geodatabase Feature ClassVectorG-polygon1coordinate pairmeters0.0000010.000001Transverse Mercator0.999600-114.00000042.0000002500000.0000001200000.000000North American Datum of 1983Geodetic Reference System 806378137.000000298.257222Explicit elevation coordinate included with horizontal coordinates1.000000IDTM831WR_POUIDWR's Water Rights databaseSHAPEFeature geometry.ESRICoordinates defining the features.WaterRightNumberConcatenation of BasinNumber, SequenceNumber and SplitSuffixIDWRBasinNumberIDWR Administrative Basin within which the right diverts water.
