Acequias and Water Rights

Acequias and Water Rights

Water...and Water Rights, the lifeblood of the American West, has been one of our favorite disciplines to participate in. As a Denver based company we have had the good fortune to work closely with Ditch Companies, Water Providers and with historic Acequia Associations. We even traveled to Spain for an upfront and personal understanding of ancient Acequia Systems and their impact on the past and present day uses of our most precious commodity.

We have conducted records examination and built document abstracts to support and research water rights ownership. We have mapped ditch and acequia routes, examined them for easement encroachments and created routes and descriptions for realignments. We also negotiate for water rights and ditch share transfers.

While the majority of our activities are as paid consultants, much of our efforts with Acequia Associations has been "pro bono", especially in Northern New Mexico. The historic land grant issues from the King of Spain many times date back before a Continental Congress was established in the United States and our unique abilities have help bridge the gaps to present day.
