Minor Changes to Water Rights
Welcome to the State Water Board's Minor Change Request webpage. Parties can request to modify their water right applications, permits, or licenses under the minor change process if they meet certain criteria provided by Water Code section 1700.4 and 1700.6. The applicability of minor change requests are much more limited than a Petition for Change, however the process is significantly more streamlined. Under minor change requests, you are only able to change the following:
- Point of Diversion
- Place of Use
- Purpose of Use
These Minor Change Requests CANNOT be used for changing anything else, including but not limited to the following:
- Increasing Amount or Rate
- Increasing Season of Diversion
- Time Extensions
Minor Changes can be requested by the Right Holder, an Agent or Consultant acting for the Right Holder, or the State Water Board.
Please visit the Petitions for Change page to review other available processes for making modifications to water rights.
This section contains links to important developments that have an impact on the Minor Changes. Please check this section periodically for the latest information. This section will also call attention to recently posted notices.
