These conditions include: the water will be diverted from a previously decreed point of diversion; the owner or operator of the storage water right gives notice to the division engineer in the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) on how the storage of the water will be accounted for in the alternative reservoir; transit and ditch losses, if applicable, will be assessed against the water right from the decreed point of diversion to the alternative reservoir; and the division engineer approves the accounting for the storage of the water in the alternative reservoir.
