The petition provided for in section 61-05-07 shall be accompanied by a map or maps of the proposed district. The map shall show the location of the proposed conveyance systems and other works
by means of which it is intended to irrigate the lands of the proposed district. If the water supply is from a natural stream, the flow of such stream shall be stated
in cubic feet [meters] per second. If the water supply for the district is to be gathered by a storage reservoir or
reservoirs, the map shall show the location thereof and shall state their capacity
in acre-feet. If the water supply is from a ground water source, the map must show the general
location of wells and proposed pumping rates. Unless otherwise permitted by the state engineer, such map shall be drawn to a scale
of not less than two inches [5.08 centimeters] to the mile [1.61 kilometers]. Preliminary designs of all proposed conveyance systems and other works shall be
prepared in sufficient detail to show the contemplated method of construction, along
with a feasibility report on the proposed plan of irrigation. The feasibility report must include an analysis of the soil and water compatibility
of the irrigable lands of the proposed district. A registered professional engineer shall prepare the map, preliminary designs, and
feasibility report required by this section.
