These cases involved the transfer of water rights from a large reservoir and ditch irrigation network to provide replacement water for depletions caused by pumping wells for municipal purposes.
Deere & Ault performed a detailed analysis of the physical and administrative development and historical use of the subject water rights. This investigation included field analyses of the farms which were evaluated by the applicants to determine the historical consumptive use of the water rights.
Deere & Ault provided expert witness testimony and litigation support during the 16-day water court trial in Case No. 02CW403. Specifically, Deere & Ault provided the prevailing expert witness testimony on several critical trial issues including irrigation efficiency, canal conveyance loss, and conditions for the future changed use of the water rights.
