Consider the numerous topics in need of consideration when establishing the water rights ownership status of a parcel and why these details are important. It can be equally impactful to establish whether a parcel HAS water rights associated with it as it is to find out the parcel is "dry".

If a parcel is "dry" it means there are no state-issued water rights associated with it and the parcel has extremely limited use.

  1. No building permits for structures will be issued, no irrigated crops can be planted, no livestock can be watered, etc.
  2. Property assessors will often overlook this detail and issue a property value determination without considering this crucial element.
  3. Before Triton, it was complicated and expensive to determine the status of water on a specific parcel.

When a parcel has water rights associated with it, there are a number of details an owner or potential buyer need to know:

  1. The quantity of water associated with the parcel.
  2. The use category assigned to the water rights (irrigation, livestock, storage, etc.)
  3. The place of use designation for the water rights.
  4. Any outstanding or approaching state requirements to keep the water in good standing (proof dates, temporary application status, etc.)
  5. The health of the state records associated with the water right (missing information, inaccurate ownership data, etc.)
