  • Exhibit A
    - "Note No. 1: The entire flow of Stony Creek and all tributary streams in the Stony Creek water shed including all streams flowing into and out of East Park Reservoir and Stony Gorge Reservoir during each annual season at and near the point of proposed diversion is necessary and required and is fully utilized by this Association and its members as the holders of water rights within the boundaries of the Orland Project of the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation, except for certain riparian and appropriative rights which have already been established and fixed by judicial decree. [shame it wasn't under penalty of perjury]
    - "Note No. 2: Priority rights dated" 10/10/1906 , 10/11/1906 , 03/23/1910 , 03/25/1913 , 04/15/1864 , 01/27/1888 , 05/04/1897 , Decree of U.S. Dist. Ct. dated 01/13/1930.
    - "Note No. 3: The water rights of the U.S. of America with reference to the Orland Project and other landowners within the watershed of Stony Creek (including the predecessors in interest of the applicants) were adjudicated by Judicial Decree dated Jan. 13, 1930, in the Northern Division of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California, Second Division, in the case of 'UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Plaintiff, vs. H.C. ANGLE, et al., Defendants, - In Equity No. 30", to which decree reference is hereby made for further particulars with reference to such water rights. The protestant ORLAND UNIT WATER USERS' ASSOC., is the successor in interest to the beneficial water rights of the U.S. of Amer. as defined in said decree pursuant to a contract entered into between the U.S. of America and the ORLAND UNIT WATER USERS' ASSOC., dated" 08/26/1954. "There are no other or additional waters in Stony Creek and its tributaries subject to appropriation during the irrigation season, or reservoir storage season at East Park Reservoir, at Stony Gorge Reservoir, at diversion dams and at tributary diversion dams, reservoirs and structures. [uh, this "position" applies to USA & its successors and assigns as much as to anyone else]
    - "Note No. 4:
    - - (a) No conditions will relieve protest.
    - - (b) This protest may be disregarded and dismissed if the diversion season is limited to the period between December 1st of each year and March 15th of the following year. [(a) & (b) are crossed off in this file copy]
    - - (c) This protest may be disregarded and dismissed if the State Water Rights Board imposes the following conditions upon any license or permit to be granted:
    'Permittee shall install and maintain an outlet pipe of adequate capacity in his dam as near as practicable to the bottom of the natural stream channel, or provide other means satisfactory to the State Water Rights Board, in order that water entering the reservoir or collected in the reservoir during and after the current storage season may be released into the downstream channel to the extent necessary to satisfy downstream prior rights and/or to the extent that appropriation of said water is not authorized under this permit.

    'This permit does not authorize collection of water to storage during the period from about March 15 to about December 1 of each season to effect [sic] evaporation and seepage losses.

    'Permittee shall allow representatives of the State Water Rights Board and other parties as may be authorized from time to time by said Board reasonable access to project works to determine compliance with the terms of this permit.'"

    061462 Protest, Ap. 20614;
  • injury: "During the irrigation season the entire flow of Stony Creek is required for adjudicated water rights, including water rights of the United States. Applicant's dams will capture such required water during the irrigation season. At times water captured during the storage season will be water to which the protestant has a prior right for storage and at times will be water sought in protestant's prior application 18115.";
  • claims right: "Priority rights acquired in 1888 and 1897 and decree in United States District Court dated" 01/13/1930. "Stony Creek waters were adjudicated by [on back] Judicial decree dated" 01/13/1930 "in the Northern District of California, Second Division in the case of United States of America, Plaintiff vs. H.C. Angle, et al., Defendants, No. 30."
  • use: "Lands within Orland Project have been under irrigation since 1910. The project works provide a full water supply for the irrigation of about 19,500 acres of irrigable land. Maximum quantity of 128,236 a.f. was used in 1953. The quantity of water diverted has averaged 111,200 a.f. for the period 1913 through 1960. The diversion period is usually from March 15 through December 1 of each year."
  • dismissal terms: "if provision is made for installation of adequate outlet works as near as practicable to the bottom of the natural stream channel, or for other means satisfactory to the Bureau for releasing water entering reservoir, and that applicants not be allowed to divert or retain water required to satisfy prior rights."

Plotted to scale and planimetered." [to p. 2] Changes from POU: "Livestock water in 2 additional '40's' at Reservoir No. 11. Reservoir 13 extends an insignificant amount into another section and Reservoir 14 is split by a section line. These additions can be made under Section 744 of Rules and Regulations." "In all cases livestock drink direct from the reservoirs; however, in the case of Reservoir No. 11 water is also piped to two float-valve-controlled watering troughs and a small seepage dam has been constructed below the dam to collect water (seepage) for livestock to drink"; use "Normal for this area--if water were not collected during the winter months it would waste into the ocean. Without reservoirs this range could only be used for 3 or 4 months in the winter while with the reservoirs cattle are kept on the range for about 7 months each year"; "2000 to 4000 cows and calves have access to these reservoirs at maximum"; max diverted "About 52 acre-feet...1964-65"; zero dead storage, all go dry late in season"; Other Rights: "Riparian to all streams covered under this filing. On this particular portion of the ranch, there are no other rights." [to p. 3]

    - Calculations: "022868 Permit 13736 does not limit the amount for each reservoir--the only limitation being the total amount of storage. The amount recommended for license for reservoir 14 was inadvertently raised above the estimate made in the application. Since Reservoirs 12 and 13 are also larger than their estimated capacities and the total above (as recommended) is smaller than the permit amount, the amount recommended for license for each of those reservoirs will be raised by 3.1 AF to bring the total amount covered under license up to the 34 AF covered under permit. Individual reservoir amounts recommended for license will be: No. 10 - 2.0 AF, No. 11 - 3.5 AF, No . 12 - 11.1 AF, No. 13 - 11.1 AF and No. 14 - 6.3 AF for a total of 34 AF for the 5 reservoirs."

The diversion dam appears to be located about as described in the permit. It is an earthen fill structure about 15' high x 60' long and has a freeboard of about 3'. The water is carried by ditch about 250' north and is then dropped into the gulch which enters the reservoir at Station 6. The ditch could carry at least 25 cfs or fill the reservoir in about 1/4 day."
    - - [to p. 9] "Remarks [para] Regarding present ownership--this portion of the original 'Jamieson Ranch' was purchased about two years ago by Elk Creek Associates but Mr. Jamieson neglected to inform the Board or did not realize that it was necessary. Mr. Winitsky of Beverly Hills who handles business matters for Elk Creek Associates was contacted about 2 weeks ago and will have Mr. Jamieson submit a notice of assignment. [para] The matter of sources is somewhat misleading--there are five reservoirs served by five unnamed streams which sounds perfectly normal however; reservoir No. 14 in addition to the water it collects from the stream upon which it is situated also receives a contribution from the next gulch or stream to the south via about 250' of earthen ditch. This situation is offset by the fact that Reservoirs 12 and 13 are located on the same stream--actually the main stream through this valley. Both have spillway capacity to handle 200 cfs or more. [para] Livestock are normally brought into this ranch (Jamieson Ranch) about November 1 and are usually taken out by June 1. In 1966 with the shortage of forage they were taken out earlier and during the present season with a surplus of feed, they may remain up into June or later." [para, handwritten] Both Mr. Winitsky and Mr. Huff were reminded of the outlet pipe clause - either ditch around or install siphons if required to release. Mr. Winitsky signed 16A with clause in place."
