§ 715. General Requirements.
(a) A general project map and one copy of suitable scale on a sheet not larger than 28 inches by 40 inches or smaller than 8-1/2 inches by 11 inches shall be filed in connection with each application. This map shall be neatly and accurately drawn and should show the source from which water is to be taken, all dams, main conduits, reservoirs and other facilities, the important streams and tributaries in the area, the place of use, and any other features necessary for ready identification and understanding of the project.
(b) The map shall show the lines of the public land survey by 40 -acre subdivision, section and township if the area is sectionalized. If the area is not sectionized the nearest lines of the public land survey to or across the project area should be extended as if it were surveyed. The lines of any other recorded survey may be used to describe the project, provided, the relation to the lines of the nearest adjacent public land survey is shown.
(c) Points of original diversion, and of rediversion from any natural stream, must be shown either by (1) bearing and distance or co-ordinate distances from some corner of a recorded survey if such a corner exists within a distance of two miles; (2) bearing and distance or co-ordinate distances from some permanent monument or a natural object which can be readily found and recognized, such as the confluence of two known streams; or (3) co-ordinates and zone of the California Co-ordinate System.
(d) The place of use shall be identified by reference to 40-acre subdivision, section, township, range and meridian of the public land survey or projection thereof, or by reference to the smallest subdivision of some other recorded survey if more commonly used within the project area except as otherwise provided in Section 719. If described by reference to some other recorded survey, the lines of the public land survey, or projection thereof, should be shown. The 40-acre subdivisions of the public land survey will be assumed regular unless it be shown otherwise.
