Water Rights Handbook for Conservation Professionals

Authored by prominent Colorado lawyers and other water experts*, this 130-page handbook provides conservation professionals and landowners with guidance on how to protect water-dependent conservation values using conservation easements.

Using an easy-to-read style, the handbook presents an introduction to analyzing water rights for conservation projects, provides guidance on water rights, due diligence, and explains water rights appraisals. The handbook also contains advice on assessing the long-term stewardship obligations of including water rights in a conservation easement, and provides recommended language for conservation easements.

Co-published by the Colorado Water Trust and Bradford Publishing with support from Great Outdoors Colorado, the handbook can be purchased for $45 by calling either the Water Trust at 720-570-2897 or Bradford Publishing at 303-292-2500 or 800-446-2831.

This handbook is a first-of-its-kind publication and will be the focus of the Colorado Coalition of Land Trusts' annual conference on Feb. 27 and 28.

*Authors—Peter Nichols, Michael Browning, Kenneth Wright, Patricia Flood, Mark Weston.
