§ 832. Contests As to Ownership.
The board will not undertake to determine contests as to ownership of rights initiated by applications to appropriate water. The board will ordinarily accept any claim asserted to ownership of an application, permit or license unless the record title holder, or an asserted successor in interest, objects. When a contest develops as to ownership the board will not ordinarily change its record until the matter is either determined by a court or adjusted to the mutual satisfaction of the parties, unless evidence of continued occupation, use, or control justifies a different course.
