Washington Water Rights, Sales and Transfers

OnDemand Webinar (89 minutes)

Stay up-to-date on Washington's water right transfer process.

Water transfers are emerging as an effective alternative to the development of new water resources. Water transfers can be used to reconcile otherwise competing needs for water in a region in which water resources have been abundant but which are becoming increasingly scarce. This topic helps practitioners understand the process for transferring water rights, the use and development of water banks and opportunities to mitigate for potential impacts.
