NOTICE OF APPLICATION FOR A NEW MITIGATED APPROPRIATION OF PUBLIC WATERS UNDER APPLICATION NO. G4-33213

TAKE NOTICE: That on September 7, 2018, Barkley Irrigation Company (BIC) of University Place, Washington applied under Application No. G4-33213 to appropriate ground water, subject to existing rights. Application No. G4-33213 requests 1600 gallons per minute and 750 acre-feet per year for the seasonal irrigation of 187.4 acres from up to 10 wells adjacent to the Methow River. The location of the proposed wells and irrigated area lies within Sec. 24 and 25, T. 34 N, R. 21 E.W.M., and Sec. 19 and 30, T. 34 N., R. 22 E.W.M.

This application is part of a previously noticed mitigation project wherein historic irrigation claims (Claim No. 129470 and 129471) from BIC are being transferred to Ecology’s trust water program for 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 mitigate for BIC’s irrigation under G4-33213, surface water application S4-33166, facilitate irrigation efficiency improvements associated with BIC, and potentially mitigate additional instream and out-of-stream uses within the Methow River Basin that will be noticed in future water right processing.

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 (last date of publication).
