Diversion:
     A turning aside or alteration of the natural course of a flow of water, normally considered physically to leave the natural channel. In some states, this can be a consumptive use direct from another stream, such as by livestock watering. In other states, a diversion must consist of such actions as taking water through a canal, pipe, or conduit.
