Stanford University Survey on Colorado Water Rights Transfers
Please join AWRA Colorado for an interactive discussion about the evolution of water rights in Colorado. We will start the discussion with a presentation about an on-going survey about water rights transfers.
Philip Womble, a PhD student at Stanford University and a licensed Colorado attorney, is conducting a survey of Colorado water attorneys, engineers, and hydrologists about water rights transfers. Philip developed this survey based on feedback he received in ten preliminary interviews with leading Colorado water attorneys, engineers, and hydrologists. In particular, the survey seeks to capture:
1) benefits of Colorado’s judicial approach to changes of water rights; and
2) estimates of legal and engineering costs for applicants and opposers to complete prospective changes of water rights
Philip will be providing an introduction as to why this survey is being conducted, and what it aims to accomplish. Please see the attached request if you are interested in participating in the survey.
