ACRE FEET: The amount of water required to cover one acre one foot deep. Also abbreviated as ac-ft.
ACRE-FOOT: An expression of water quantity. One acre-foot
will cover one acre of ground one foot deep. An acre-foot
contains 43,560 cubic feet, 1,233 cubic meters, or 325,829 gallons (U.S.).
A Miner's Inch: Unit of measure of water, it is 1/40th of a cubic foot of flowing water per second. One cubic foot or 40 miners inches flowing per second for 12 hours equals one acre foot. Thus, a claim for 400 miners inches would be 20 acre feet every 24 hours.
