Prior to 1964, the Water Board released water from the facility upon the call of any user until the lake was dry, without regard to the volume taken from the lake by any specific user. Then, in 1964, Water Board in a unilateral interpretation of the contract decided to limit each user to 1.427 acre feet per "inch right." This "order" resulted in limiting the plaintiffs to a total of approximately 22 acre feet. Claiming a deprivation of their contract rights, plaintiffs claimed damages for injury to their crops occasioned by the reduction of the amount of water that they had previously received. They also asked the court to enjoin the Water Board from reducing delivery of water in an amount less than that received historically over the years until the 1964 limitation of which complaint is made.
