Water is for Fighting! Water Right Adjudications in Salt Lake Valley
As competing demands over water resources within the Salt Lake Valley continue to grow, the urgency for clarity and certainty in the realm of water rights likewise becomes more critical. Having evolved over time--commensurate with the history of Utah--present-day water rights take many shapes and forms. Consequently, questions of supplemental relationships, pre-statutory rights, forfeiture, and Federal Reserve rights often cloud the overall water rights picture.
