11a. Additional Remarks
Sec. 2: The year set forth is a "no later than year" as to appropriative rights. Riparian rights were first used no later than 1907. Sec.4c: The water diverted under the rights set forth in the Initial SWDU is used in conjunction with the permits and licenses listed in Part D of the SWDU. This use is concurrent with and as an inextricable part of the district's "Base Supply" under its Water Rights Settlement Contract with Reclamation. As set forth in that contract, however, the numerical values assigned to the Base Supply were made with a full reservation of rights to claim any and all water rights reflected in permits, licenses or otherwise provided for by law, and that would include the rights set forth in the Initial SWDU. Therefore, nothing in the Initial SWDU nor in this or subsequent Supplemental SWDUs should be construed in any way as a waiver of or limitation on any of the district's water rights in whatever form those rights are provided for. The monthly diversion amounts in Section 4c are provided as a convenience only, as an illustration of the typical diversion rates of the district. They are not intended to be, nor should they be construed as any expression of a limitation on the water rights referred to in the SWDUs. Sec. 6: The pre-1914 claim applies to 6,216 acres within the district's boundaries. The riparian claim applies to 586 acres within the district's boundaries.
