The map below shows the "seniority" of water licenses in the Battle River watershed. The more "senior" the license (that is, the longer the license has been held), the greater the priority. In other words, senior license holders are entitled to their allocation of water before more junior license holders. The exception to this is that household water use has the greatest priority of all.
