Soil Moisture Use (ityopr=22)

The type 22 operating rule allows the administration date for soil moisture use to be specified for all ditches and wells with one operational right. This operating rule is commonly applied when soil moisture accounting is included in the analysis (control variable soild = 1). Note this operating rule expects, and checks, that the control file (*.ctl) variables itsfile, ieffmax and soild are set appropriately. As described in Section 4.2, the control variable soild allows water deliveries in excess of a diversion's consumptive demand to be stored in the soil moisture zone. This operating rule allows the administration date to be specified that controls when water stored in the soil moisture zone is used (e.g. after surface rights, after well right, etc.). Note the soil moisture accounting requires the variable efficiency option be on by setting the annual time series file control variable (itsfile) equal to 10.
