What Are Hydrographic Survey Maps?

As part of the General Adjudication process, the Utah Division of Water Rights prepares hydrographic survey maps. These maps show all of the water use in a particular area, including the location and acreage of all irrigated land and the location of all streams, wells, springs, and other water sources.

Hydrographic survey maps can be very useful when researching how water was used in the past and when trying to determine appurtenancy and title issues for Reports of Water Right Conveyance.

Most of the hydrographic survey maps are available online by clicking here.
