Title: Applications For Permit: Place Of Use
Publication date: 20160107
Data type: vector digital data
Description
A characterization of the data, including its intended use and limitations.
Abstract:
Places 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 WRReport 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 stages:- Application for a new WR (this is the stage being depicted in this dataset) 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
Purpose:
To portray locations of new water appropriations being applied for through Idaho Department of Water Resources licensing process.

WaterRight
Definition:
Concatenation of basin number, sequence number, and (optionally) suffix that, taken together,uniquely identifies a water right.  A fully-formed water right number will read [Basin]-[Sequence]{Suffix}.  Examples:

67-515A
63-12123
19-486
Attribute values: String representing a water right number
Attribute definition source:
IDWR
BasinNumbe
Definition:
The first portion of a water right number.  This is a number that refers to one of IDWR's adminstrative basins.  These are either a major drainage basin in the state of Idaho (examples include the Portneuf River basin, the Weiser River basin, and the Boise River basin), or one of the three segments of the Snake River (1: From head to Milner Dam, 2: from Milner Dam to first contact with Oregon state line, 3: from Oregon until finally leaving the state for good).
Attribute definition source:
IDWR
SequenceNu
Definition:
The second portion of a water right number.  This is a number that uniquely identifies a particular water right in a particular administrative basin.  That is to say that a combination of basin number and sequence number uniquely identifies a water right (usually--details in split suffix).
Attribute definition source:
IDWR
SplitSuffi
Definition:
When a water right is split (for example when a farmer sells a portion of a field), at least two water rights are created where there previously was one. New numbers must be generated to uniquely identify these new water rights.  Until roughly 2001, these new water right numbers were generated by adding a letter to the end of the old (parent) water right number.  This letter is referred to as a split suffix.  After 2001, this practice was phased out in favor of creating an entirely new sequence number.

TributaryO
Definition:
The stream into which the stream in "Source" flows into.  If Source = 'Boise River' then this field should contain 'Snake River'.  This is useful in separating common source names like 'Deer Creek'.  If Source = 'Deer Creek' then data users may need to narrow searches only to WHERE TributaryO = 'Portneuf River' in order to eliminate returns from several streams named 'Deer Creek' across the state.

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.

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.
