Water Right Procurement


WSW goes through required processes with the Division of Water Quality and State Water Court to ensure conditional and absolute water rights for clients, especially in the State of Colorado. We visit landowner’s property and communicate as to where and what they have the right to use, whether it is for irrigation canals, navigating certain waters or the use of water from streams or lakes. Water rights are incorporated into most of the projects that WSW takes on, confirming each area is allowed for usage or for modification.
