Water Law PC -
Utah, and many other Western States grant perpetual ownership of water - considered a real property right. However, ownership is not without its limitations because water rights forfeit with nonuse and water administration demands a keen understanding of complex laws that constantly changing.
If you can't use your water, what good is the right?
Changes to water rights have intensified and unless you track water right applications - you may have no idea if your water right is impaired. If you don't timely protest, you cannot challenge an impairment. Do you know that the water you are purchasing can be diverted from the new well and used on the new location? With the value of water skyrocketing - trust a specialist to research your rights and monitor changes upstream.
You never know the worth of water until the well is dry.
This site is dedicated to water rights, irrigation shares and the complex laws surrounding the allocation and use of water in Utah.
