There are two water rights on this quarter #42399 and #43153 with a priority date of 1-22-1998.

Tract #2 is the E ½ of W ½ 25-34-40 and the E ½ 25-34-40 less a 20 acre tract on the north side of the legal. The tract is south of Road F and begins approximately a quarter mile east of county paved Road 24. There is 457.18 acres in the tract comprising 440.89 acres cropland and 16.29 acres noncropland. Soils are 372.1 acres Dalhart Loamy Fine Sand 3-5% slope; 57.8 acres Bigbow Loamy Fine Sand 0-3% slope; and 23.1 acres Eva Loamy Fine Sand 3-8% slope.
There is 287.83 acres of pivot irrigated cropland and 153.06 acres dry cropland per FSA maps. There is one water right #41785, priority date 7-17-1995, authorizing irrigation of 280 acres with an authorized quantity of 420 acre feet at an authorized rate of 970 gpm. The well was pumping 600 gpm in 2016 per the owner. Of the 280 acres authorized to be irrigated, 147 acres are authorized north of the half mile line, and 133 acres south of the half mile line. The pivot as placed on the land has an estimated 80 acres of actual irrigated acres north of the half mile line, and 200 acres of actual irrigated acres south of the half mile line. The buyer will need to make an ‘application to change the place of use’ with the Kansas Division of Water Resources (DWR) to distribute the 280 acres authorized to match how the pivot is physically laid out north and south of the half mile line. This is not expected to be a problem, but needs to be done. Prospective buyers should research this with the DWR and Groundwater Management District #3 (GWMD#3) both in Garden City, KS.
As stated in the Tract #1 description above, an irrigation water ‘place of use overlap’ exists between Tract #1 & Tract #2 meaning water can be moved between the Tracts limited to authorized acres and quantities. Buyers are responsible for verifying the accuracy of this with the DWR and GWMD#3. The irrigation systems in Tract #1 and Tract #2 are tied together with underground pipe. Tract# 2 has a 12 tower T&L circle irrigation system powered by a 200HP electric motor variable speed. Electric power comes in from the south side of the section.
