LRE Water

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.
