Summary: Page 1
INSTRUCTION SHEET _____ PARTICIPANT ID
Imagine that you own and operate a farm (you do not pay cash rent for land).
Your farm produces timothy hay, and you are entering the last year of a four-year
timothy growing cycle (as a part of a 6-year rotation: 4 years of timothy, 1 year of spring
wheat, 1 year of hay oats). You have one 100-acre plot. You use rill irrigation. Assume
your farm has legally-clear, senior (i.e. pre-May 9, 1905) water rights sufficient to
irrigate the entire 100-acre plot. You irrigate using water from a nearby creek. For our
purposes, assume that each acre of timothy hay requires three acre-feet of irrigation water
(in total consumptive use see Box 1) to be applied over the growing season.Your
diversion is metered. Your land is at the bottom of the creek where it joins the mainstem
river, and you have the most senior right on
the creek. All other diversions on the creek
are metered and reported in the same way as
yours.
(Note to participants: We realize that this
situation probably does not apply to your
farm or ranch. We realize many or most of
you have overlapping shares in KRD and
use district water in addition to creek water.
