Judge Don M. Torgerson
The State of Utah to the said defendant:
You are hereby summoned in the above entitled action which is brought for the purpose of making a general determination of the water rights of the described water source. Upon the service of this summons upon you, you will thereafter be subject to the jurisdiction of the entitled court and, if you have or intend to claim a water right, it shall be your duty to follow further proceedings in the above entitled action and to defend and protect your water rights therein. If you have not been served with summons other than by publication in a newspaper and you claim a water right within the area of the Moab South Subdivision (05-5) for which you have not previously filed a statement of claim, you must file a statement of claim in accordance with Section 73-4-5(1) in this action setting forth the nature of your claim within ninety (90) days following the last date of publication of this summons. Your failure so to do will constitute a default in the premises and a judgment may be entered against you declaring and adjudging that you have forfeited all rights to the use of water within the Moab South Subdivision and that you are forever barred and estopped from subsequently asserting such right to the use of water not claimed.
Dated this 4th day of March, 2020.
