Water Rental Options

An update on rental of mitigation water after a water call for out of priority water users with post 1900 rights.

Currently Water District 1 rental pool rules have eliminated renting water from:
1. WD-1
2. Water Bank (rental water not in District 29-D)
3. Common Pool
4. A Private Lease from the City of Pocatello

Basically, no options are available to those of us in WD-29D except from the Shoshone Bannock Tribes. Dennis Hill has been able to work with Bret Bovie of West Water (they administer the lease water for the Shoshone Bannock Tribes) and that looks promising, however they are waiting to see what comes of the current set of rules for mitigation water.


Also, Dennis has been working with the Idaho Water Resource Board to try to modify the moratorium but he is has been met with a lot of resistance. Hopefully, with perseverance it may still be an alternative. I encourage everyone to go to the Water District 1 website and read the Water Pool Rules and become acquainted with the procedures for next year. We will probably get a water call.
