What We Do
Water Resource Strategies
Water is local - and our team at LRE Water has the local knowledge in river administration and management, case history, court and rule making hearing decisions, and application of the prior appropriation doctrine that is needed to develop appropriate water resource strategies throughout the western US. Our water rights expertise, paired with our institutional knowledge of local water administration and Water Court matters, gives LRE Water a unique ability to forecast potential issues, and gives our clients the information necessary to minimize the impact of potential unknowns, plan ahead for uncertainties, and focus on those issues that have the potential to directly impact their water right assets.

Our team has developed custom tools ranging from desktop tools to web-based interactive accounting tools and decision support systems. These tools rely on a proven approach that supports rapid deployment and long-term management, ensuring the tools remain operable and relevant for years to come. Our team’s modeling experience includes deterministic solutions supporting permitting and water supply assessments as well as sophisticated probabilistic water allocation models using a variety of platforms to support projections and decision support systems.
