(1) Landowners; and
(2) tenants or operators granted authority by landowners through power of attorney.
(b) If cost-share funds are utilized to convert nonirrigated land, which is also known as land with no water right, an equal amount of previously irrigated land shall be taken out of irrigated production, unless an exception is granted by the commission.
(c) Before project approval, the applicant shall provide the district with verification of the following:
(1) The allowable pump rate;
(2) the location and the amount of the land authorized for irrigation; and
(3) a valid water right in good standing.
(d) Each approved applicant for irrigation practice financial assistance shall review and sign a conservation plan of operations (CPO) and an irrigation development plan prepared by the natural resources conservation service. Failure to implement the requirements of the CPO due to neglect by the irrigator may result in payback of cost-share funds by the recipient according to the guidelines specified in K.A.R. 11-1-11.
(e) Each application for financial assistance for irrigation practices shall meet eligibility requirements based on the estimated cost of potential water savings. Potential water savings shall be determined using table KS6-1 of the natural resource conservation service's "irrigation guide," as in effect January 2002 and hereby adopted by reference.
