NOTICE OF APPLICATION TO CHANGE PLACE AND PURPOSE OF USE AS AUTHORIZED UNDER CLAIM NO. 129470 AND CLAIM NO. 129471

AND NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR A NEW MITIGATED APPROPRIATION OF PUBLIC WATERS UNDER APPLICATION NO. S4-33166

TAKE NOTICE: That on October 26, 2015, Barkley Irrigation Company (BIC) of University Place, Washington applied to change the place of use and purpose of use under Claim No. 129470, and Claim No. 129471 by submitting change application number is CS4-129470CL@4. Both claims represent a single pre-code vested water right.

Claim No. 129470, under priority date of June, 1900 claims the diversion of 85 cfs and 61,200 acre-feet per year from the Methow River with the point of diversion located within Sec. 13, T. 34 N, R. 21 E.W.M. for the irrigation of 900 acres during the irrigation season.

Claim No. 129471, under priority date of September, 1909 claims the diversion of 60 cfs and 43,200 acre-feet per year from the Methow River with the point of diversion located within Sec. 13, T. 34 N, R. 21 E.W.M. for the irrigation of 900 acres during the irrigation season. However, ecology noted an error in the claimed location based on a GPS measurement associated with a subsequent change authorization, locating the actual diversion within SE¼ SW¼ SW¼ S. 12, T. 34 N., R. 21 E.W.M.

The 900 acres authorized for irrigation under Claim Nos. 129470 and 129471 are located in Sections 13, 24, and 25 of T. 34 N., R. 21 E.W.M., Sections 19, 30, and 31 of T. 34 N., R. 22 E.W.M., and Sections 5, 6, and 8 of T. 33 N., R. 22 E.W.M.

Change Application No. CS4-129470CL@4 proposes to change the purpose and place of use of BIC’s water right to instream flow and mitigation. The transfer to instream flow is intended to benefit the Methow River from the historic point of diversion to the confluence with the Columbia River. This transfer is also intended to provide mitigation through the creation of a water bank to mitigate of out-of-stream uses, including irrigation and to facilitate irrigation efficiency improvements associated with the BIC.

On October 26, 2015, Barkley Irrigation Company (BIC) of University Place, Washington under Application No. S4-33166, applied to appropriate surface water, subject to existing rights, mitigated by the two above mentioned BIC water rights transferred to Ecology’s trust water program. This application was amended on May 4th, 2017 to correct the proposed diversion location. Application No. S4-33166 requests 26.0 cubic feet per second and 8,327.57 acre-feet per year from the Methow River, from a diversion point located within Sec. 25, T. 34 N, R. 21 E.W.M., for the seasonal irrigation of 667.8 acres in sections 13, 24, and 25 of T. 34N., R 21 E.W.M., sections 19, 30, and 31 of T. 34N., R 22 E.W.M., and sections 5, 6, and 8 of T. 33N., R 22 E.W.M.

Protests or objections to the approval of these applications must include a detailed statement of the basis for objections. All letters of protest will become public record. Cash shall not be accepted. Fees must be paid by check or money order and are nonrefundable. Protests must be accompanied by a fifty dollar ($50) recording fee payable to the Department of Ecology, and filed with the Department of Ecology Cashiering Unit, P.O. Box 47611, Olympia, WA 98504-7611 within thirty (30) days from May 24 & 31, 2017.
