A Water Class consists of a series of codes that provide the location of the diversion, the SOURCE of water, the USE of the water and the administrative operation required to make the diversion. The Water Class, combined with a daily, monthly or annual volume, constitutes a Diversion Record. The codes that make up a Water Class are:

  • WDID - structure ID at which the diversion was made
  • ACT - each WDID may have multiple accounts as indicated by a three digit extension appended to the right of a decimal point after the WDID
  • SOURCE - source of the water being diverted
  • FROM - structure WDID of “enabling structure” associated with more complex diversions; may also have an ACT extension
  • USE - how the diverted water was used
  • TYPE - provides additional detail regarding the administrative operation associated with the diversion
  • GROUP - the WDID of a group or authorizing agent associated with the diversion
  • TO - the WDID of a structure to which a release is being delivered; may also have an ACT extension

    CAUTION: Large datasets will slow down or freeze your browser. You should:
    • Make your query as specific as possible
    • Match the 'modified' date to your capture frequency
    • Possibly limit your 'pageSize' (at least to preview data)
