§ 1066. Annual Fees for Permits or Licenses.
(a) A person who holds a water right permit or license shall pay a minimum annual fee of $300. If the total annual amount of diversion authorized by the permit or license is greater than 10 acre-feet, then the permittee or licensee shall pay an additional $0.099 for each acre-foot in excess of 10 acre-feet.
(1) For permits or licenses issued prior to the beginning of the year for which the fee is imposed, the board shall calculate annual fees according to the total annual amount of diversion authorized by the permit or license as of the beginning of the year.
(2) The board shall calculate annual fees for permits issued on or after the beginning of the year according to the total annual amount of diversion authorized by the permit as issued by the board.
(3) The annual fee shall be 75 percent of the fee calculated pursuant to subdivision (a) based on the face value of the permit or license, or a minimum fee of $300 plus $0.099 for every acre-foot in excess of 10 acre-feet actually diverted, whichever is greater, for permits or licenses issued on or after January 1, 2020 that meet the following criteria:
(A) The permit or license meets the criteria for the reduced application fee under section 1062, subdivision (a)(1)(F); and
(B) The right holder has installed and is maintaining a stream gage with telemetry capabilities to provide publicly available real-time streamflow conditions via the California Data Exchange Center website.
(4) The reduced annual fee available pursuant to subdivision (a)(3) of this section shall not apply if the right holder does not timely submit the progress report by the permittee required by section 925 or the report of licensee required by section 929.
(5) The reduced annual fee available pursuant to subdivision (a)(3) of this section shall be calculated based on timely reported diversions for the preceding reporting year, provided that the annual fee for the year in which a permit is issued shall be 75 percent of the fee calculated pursuant to subdivision (a) based on the face value of the permit or license.
(b) The board shall calculate the annual fee based on the total annual amount of diversion authorized by the permit or license, without regard to the availability of water for diversion or any bypass requirements or other conditions or constraints that may have the practical effect of limiting diversions but do not constitute a condition of the permit or license that expressly sets a maximum amount of diversion.
(1) If the permit or license does not expressly identify the total annual amount of diversion, the board shall calculate the total annual amount based on the rate of authorized diversion multiplied by the length of time in the authorized season of diversion.
(2) If the permit or license contains an annual diversion limitation that is applicable only to that permit or license, and the limitation is less than the calculated diversion volume, the fee shall be based on the amount specified in the limitation.
(3) If a person holds multiple water rights that contain an annual diversion limitation that is applicable to the combination of those rights, but the person may still divert the full amount authorized under a particular right, then the fee shall be based on the total annual amount for that individual right.
