Upon the discharge of any liability, the district shall issue to the water user its certificate of full payment executed by the chairman of the board and the secretary of the district, and acknowledged so that the certificate may be recorded in the records of the county wherein the property of the water user affected by such liability and the discharge thereof is situated.
