Water Right Change Application

Below are links to the protests and requests for hearing in response to the San Juan County Water Conservancy District's (SJCWCD's) August 27, 2009, Application for Permanent Change for Water Rights for Water Right 09-462. SJCWCD proposed to change the point(s) of diversion, place of use, and nature of use for 24,000 acre feet of water (over 26.5 million gallons per day) that will be withdrawn from the Green River. The water is to be used for the Blue Castle Holdings Inc. (formerly Transition Power Development LLC) proposed 2-unit nuclear power reactor, the Blue Castle Project, a few miles west of the City of Green River, Utah. SJCWCD leased the water rights to Transition Power in 2007. The protests were due on October 14, 2009. The change applications were similar to those submitted by the Kane County Water Conservancy District on March 30, 2009.

Protestors brought forth a number of concerns and reasons why the change application should be denied.

A hearing on the protests of the San Juan and Kane County Water Conservancy Districts' request to transfer water rights (total of 53,6000 acre-feet) to the Green River for the proposed Blue Castle Project was held on January 12, 2010, in Green River. Additional testimony was submitted by the parties on or before March 1, 2010.
