DEPARTMENT OF WATER RESOURCES — WATER RESOURCE BOARD
42-1766. Appeals procedure for water right holders. (1) During the period of a lease, any water right holder who determines that the lease is causing a water right to which the holder is entitled, to be deprived of water to which it may be otherwise entitled, may petition the director of the department of water resources to revoke or modify the lease. Upon such a petition, the director shall cause an investigation to be made and may hold hearings or gather information in some other manner. In the event that the director finds that an interference is occurring, he may revoke or require the lease to be modified to insure that no injury to other water rights occurs.
(2) Any person feeling aggrieved by a decision or action of the director shall be entitled to contest the action of the director pursuant to section 42-1701A(3), Idaho Code.
