Interior to prepare and maintain complete, detailed, and accurate 
records of diversions of water, return flow, and consumptive use and 
make these records available at least annually. This information is 
needed to ensure that a State or a water user within a State does not 
exceed its authorized use of Colorado River water. Water users are

determines the consumptive use by subtracting return flow from 
diversions or by other engineering means. Without the information
