Water Use Reporting Form:
- 2020 Annual Water Use Reporting Form - new format to allow:
1) reporting of both registered and permitted diversions
2) electronic signature directly on the form
If you were required to obtain a permit for a non-consumptive use, such as a stream channel alteration, culvert, or pond dredging, please consult your permit for any reporting or notice requirements.
No reporting is required for a non-consumptive diversion registration such as a stream channel alteration, impoundment, or culvert.
If you operate a consumptive diversion where water is withdrawn and removed from its native location, but withdraw less than 50,000 gallons of water during any 24-hour period and will not exceed that daily volume, you are exempt from the requirements of the Water Diversion Policy Act and not required to report.
Discontinued DiversionsPlease contact the DEEP Water Planning and Management Division at (860) 424-3704 or email@example.com if you have permanently discontinued your registered or permitted diversion, or sold or transferred the diversion to another party, so that we may update our records.
