What you need for Water Management Act 20-Year Permit Renewal Application

This application form is for Water Management permittees who need to renew their WMA Permit. Permittees who anticipate needing additional water will also need to file an application for a new Water Management permit (WM03). Permittees who do not need to increase their authorized withdrawal volume immediately, but expect to need more water in the future, must either a) apply for a new 20-year permit for the anticipated additional withdrawal volumes now along with submitting a renewal application, or b) can apply for a permit renewal for the current authorized withdrawal volume now, and then file an application for a new permit later as their water withdrawals approach the authorized permit limit.
