CHAPTER 2
APPROPRIATION OF WATER — PERMITS, CERTIFICATES, AND LICENSES — SURVEY
42-237d.  Local ground water boards. Whenever a written statement of claim as provided in section 42-237b hereof is filed with the director of the department of water resources, if the statement of the claimant is deemed sufficient by the director of the department of water resources and meets the requirements of section 42-237b, the said director of the department of water resources shall forthwith proceed to form a local ground water board for the purpose of hearing such claim. The said local ground water board shall consist of the director of the department of water resources, and a person who is a qualified engineer or geologist, appointed by the district judge of the judicial district which includes the county in which the well of respondent, or one of the respondents if there be more than one, is located, and a third member to be appointed by the other two, who shall be a resident irrigation farmer of the county in which the well of respondent, or one of the respondents if there be more than one, is located. None of such members shall be persons owning or claiming water right which may be affected by such claim, nor members of the board of directors of any irrigation district or canal company owning or claiming water rights affected by such claims. No employee of the state of Idaho other than said director of the department of water resources is eligible for appointment to a ground water board. Members of the board shall hold office until the board has finally disposed of the claim which it was appointed to hear. Such members shall serve without pay except that members other than the director of the department of water resources shall receive per diem of $25.00 together with reimbursement of expenses actually incurred during the time actually spent in the performance of official duties, such per diem and expenses to be paid from the ground water administration fund hereinafter created. Whenever such a local ground water board is needed to be formed in any county, the director of the department of water resources shall give notice of that fact to the district judge of the judicial district which includes the county in which the well of respondents, or one of the respondents if there be more than one, is located, and thereupon such judge shall appoint a person to be a member of such board. Upon qualification by such member, the third member shall be selected. The director of the department of water resources shall be the chairman of the board and custodian of all its records. He may be represented at any board meeting by a duly appointed, qualified and acting deputy director of the department of water resources.
