§ 749. Rejection of Protest.
A protest will not be accepted if it fails substantially to comply with the requirements of Section 745, fails to state a valid ground of protest, or is based upon issues which are not within the jurisdiction of the board; provided, however, that the board will allow reasonable opportunity to correct a protest or to reach a settlement with the applicant. Since an upstream water user can take water before it reaches a downstream applicant, a protest based upon interference with a prior right of such upstream user normally will not be accepted.
