Basin Adjudication and Water Right Management

 

We use current Supreme Court claim examination procedures to accurately evaluate all of your water right claims (priority date ranking, reliability of water supply, research documentation of historical use, acreage determinations, flow rates and ditch capacities, chain of title searches and personal interviews).  Additionally, we professionally assembled reports provide you with recommendations to resolve any potential conflicts, discrepancies, or issue remarks on your water rights.​​

This ensures that your rights are represented with the best supporting evidence possible throughout the statewide Basin Adjudication process. When contradictions and disputes arise, this information is indispensable in defending the integrity of your water rights.

Water Rights, Inc. assists in establishing new water rights and/or changing existing rights.  In fact, we prepare all types of water right applications, objection forms, and notices.  Our permit applications include all required data (historical and current), including aerial photographs, site maps, flow measurements, drainage analysis, irrigation and/or pond water requirements and materials that assist you in obtaining the permits you need…fast.​​

System and Infrastructure Design

Maximize the capacity of your appropriated irrigation water.  We determine optimum crop scheduling, complete thorough ditch and system loss studies, relocate points of diversion, and design entire irrigation and conveyance systems. We determine crop and irrigation requirements for all types of soils and irrigation system designs.  WRI makes the transition from flood to sprinkler irrigation efficient and economical by implementing our own professionally engineered designs, including headgates, partial & Cutthroat flumes, all types of weirs and conveyance ditches/pipelines, and gravity flow designs.  We then monitor system operation.  We use salvaged water (salved water through more efficient use) to irrigate additional acreage.​​

Our technical staff are adept at monitoring network design, water table mapping and aquifer delineation, well design, aquifer testing, and surface water/ground water modeling.
