Trust Water Rights Guidance Workshop

This page is being maintained as an archive of past information and will not be updated.

The principle purpose of the workshop is to provide a forum for participants to ask questions about trust water rights generally, and to share experiences gained from case studies of several water acquisition projects.  Another workshop objective was to bring together organizations with different roles in the water acquisition process to continue building a statewide network of “trust water savvy” people.
