ForensisGroup Water Rights Expert Witnesses understand the subtleties and dynamics of this very specialized area of expertise.
Water rights give a person or entity the legal entitlement to have water diverted from a source. Water rights are property rights, but this doesn’t give ownership of the water itself—only the right to use it.
Note that water rights law in the western United States is significantly different from the laws on water use in the Eastern; for that reason alone, you need to make sure you have an expert that is well-versed in these jurisdictional differences, not just in the law but in the environment and the governmental processes.
