The Utah Division of Water Rights has set a public meeting to discuss the ongoing general adjudication in the Birdseye area. The following information is from the public meeting notice:

What: Public Meeting
Who: Water Users within the Birdseye Area
When: January 29th, 2014, 4:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Where: Spanish Fork City Fairgrounds, High Chapparal Room, 475 South Main Street, Spanish Fork, UT 84660
Purpose: In accordance with Chapter 73-4, Utah Code Annotated, and the Third Judicial District Court (Civil No. 57298), the State Engineer is authorized and ordered to conduct a general determination of the rights to the use of all water, both surface and underground, within the drainage area of Utah Lake and the Jordan River within Salt Lake County.
The hydrographic survey associated with the Birdseye adjudication has revealed several discrepancies relating to beneficial use, place of use, and ownership of various Strawberry Valley Project water right exchanges.  In an effort to guide water users through the necessary steps to resolve the discrepancies associated with their respective SVP exchange(s), the Division of Water Rights will be holding a Public Meeting.  Following a brief presentation, representatives from the Division of Water Rights will be available to discuss the adjudication process, review SVP exchange(s), and answer questions.
