§ 791. Change Petitions.
(a) After notice of an application to appropriate water has been given pursuant to Article 3, changes in point of diversion, place of use, or purpose of use as stated in the application, permit, or license may be allowed only upon petition and provided that the petitioner establishes that the proposed change(s) will neither in effect initiate a new right nor injure any other legal user of water.

The petitioner shall provide the same factual basis for a temporary, long-term, or permanent change in a water right determined under Water Code Section 2500 et seq. as would be required for a temporary, long-term, or permanent change under a permit or license.
(c) See Sections 686, 730 and 799 regarding the addition of generation of power as a purpose of use.

(e) The procedures set forth in Articles 15, 16, 16.5 and 17 shall be followed as nearly as possible when filing and processing petitions for changes in permits or licenses other than changes in point of diversion, place of use, and purpose of use.
(f) A petition will not be accepted for initial review or filing unless it is accompanied by the filing fee required by chapter 5 (commencing with section 1061) of this division. If after the initial review of a petition described in this section the board does not accept the petition for filing, the board shall refund the petition filing fee, minus the $250 non-refundable initial review fee.
