Water Rights Shared Priority
As part of the priority water rights solver, an enhancement was made to optionally allow a model to have duplicate or shared water right priority dates. When multiple accounts share a priority date, they proportionally share the available water while not shorting higher priority rights. The details of this solution algorithm and more information can be found Computing Appropriation Without Subordination for Equal Priority Accounts in Accounting.
To use this:
• Enable the Allow Equal Priority Dates for Accounts toggle in the Account System Configuration
• Select the Share Proportionally With Limits method in the Account Equal Priority Allocation method category on the water rights computational subbasin
• Configure multiple accounts to have the same priority date on each account or through the Account Manager
The relevant account dialogs were also enhanced to show you when you have accounts that share a priority date.
