Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Over the years IDWR has issued orders establishing, modifying and rescinding water development moratoriums involving various geographic areas of the state.  A moratorium affects  issuance of permits to divert and use surface and/or ground water and is established to protect existing water rights. See http://idwr.idaho.gov/legal-actions/orders/moratorium-orders.html  for documents regarding Moratoriums.
Purpose:
To show areas where a current Moratorium is present.
Supplemental information:
(a)	 Twin Falls Ground Water Management Area – w/in T9 & 10S, R16, 17, & 18E.  Created because artesian pressure in the thermal (low temp) ground water aquifer underlying the TFGWMA was declining.  Moratorium extended 5 years (time period 4/17/2008 thru 4/1/2013), unless rescinded or modified by order of the director.
(b)	8/13/2004 order dissolved the 10/21/1991 Bancroft Lund Ground Water Management Area.  Approval of applications to appropriate ground water is prohibited within Water District No. 13T except under some circumstances.
(c)	12/4/1985 Banbury Hot Springs Ground Water Management order.  Area created 4/12/1983.  Pending applications for permit to appropriate ground water within the Banbury Hot Springs Ground Water Management area are stayed until further order by the Director.  Owners of permits to appropriate water within the area shall cease and suspend any further development as of the date of service of this order

d) Boise Front GWMA Moratorium. 6/10/1988. This order established a 5-year moratorium to prevent further development or additional use of the low temperature geothermal resource within the Boise Front Low Temperature Geothermal Resource GWMA. Note: This moratorium was extended for additional 5-year periods currently through May 5th, 2014
e)   Eastern Snake  Plain Moratorium http://idwr.idaho.gov/WaterManagement/orders/Moratorium/PDFs/Moratorium%20ESA%201993.pdf

Metadata Standards
Description of the metadata standard used to document the data and reference to any additional extended profiles to the standard used by the metadata producer.
Standard name: FGDC Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata
Standard version: FGDC-STD-001-1998
Time convention: local time
FGDC Plus Metadata Stylesheet
Stylesheet: FGDC Plus Stylesheet
File name: FGDC Plus.xsl
Version: 2.3
Description: This metadata is displayed using the FGDC Plus Stylesheet, which is an XSL template that can be used with ArcGIS software to display metadata. It displays metadata elements defined in the Content Standard for Digital Geospatial Metadata (CSDGM) - aka FGDC Standard, the ESRI Profile of CSDGM, the Biological Data Profile of CSDGM, and the Shoreline Data Profile of CSDGM. CSDGM is the US Federal Metadata standard. The Federal Geographic Data Committee originally adopted the CSDGM in 1994 and revised it in 1998. According to Executive Order 12096 all Federal agencies are ordered to use this standard to document geospatial data created as of January, 1995. The standard is often referred to as the FGDC Metadata Standard and has been implemented beyond the federal level with State and local governments adopting the metadata standard as well. The Biological Data Profile broadens the application of the CSDGM so that it is more easily applied to biological data that are not explicitly geographic (laboratory results, field notes, specimen collections, research reports) but can be associated with a geographic location. Includes taxonomical vocabulary. The Shoreline Data Profile addresses variability in the definition and mapping of shorelines by providing a standardized set of terms and data elements required to support metadata for shoreline and coastal data sets. The FGDC Plus Stylesheet includes the Dublin Core Metadata Element Set. It supports W3C DOM compatible browsers such as IE7, IE6, Netscape 7, and Mozilla Firefox. It is in the public domain and may be freely used, modified, and redistributed. It is provided "AS-IS" without warranty or technical support.
Instructions: On the top of the page, click on the title of the dataset to toggle opening and closing of all metadata content sections or click section links listed horizontally below the title to open individual sections. Click on a section name (e.g. Description) to open and close section content. Within a section, click on a item name (Status, Key Words, etc.) to open and close individual content items. By default, the Citation information within the Description section is always open for display.
