Water… our most precious and life-sustaining resource. From Nevada’s rural agrarian communities to the fastest growing counties and cities in the country, it demands experienced legal team dedication to navigating the complex laws that govern its use, its ownership and overall management in our local communities, Nevada and beyond. We work with our clients to develop water management strategies and goals.
The firm regularly works with the State Engineer (Nevada Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, Division of Water Resources), the Southern Nevada Water Authority, the Las Vegas Water District, the Truckee Meadows Water Authority, the Public Utilities Commission and various governmental entities on behalf of our clients on issues pertaining to water rights and resource management. These include various applications for surface and ground water rights, applications for changes in water rights, as well as protesting such applications, along with assisting clients in avoiding the forfeiture of water rights and placing the water to beneficial use. We have experience in all the legal and administrative procedures and laws that stem from Title 48, Nevada’s guiding statute on water law to the Truckee River Decree established in the 1800s.
