Water Rights


 

COURSE SYLLABUS

Course Description

With the increased demand for water frontage and access to water, its value has increased dramatically, which in turn has led to many efforts to buy up water frontage and develop it for specific projects. That goal is often at odds with the desire of the local governments and the DEQ to preserve natural areas and to protect the public's access to the state's water resources. These and other issues have made water law and riparian rights more and more prevalent in real estate transactions and litigation as opposing groups seek to use or redefine riparian rights, ownership of waterfront property, access to water, flowage rights along rivers and streams, and similar issues.

Well worth it! I would pay for the course even if it wasn’t for continuing education… . I would absolutely take a class from Certified Training Institute for my next renewal.
