Population growth and rising crop yields both demand more water. Yet in most areas, fresh water supplies are fully appropriated – and sometimes over-appropriated. As surplus supplies dwindle, water rights are becoming increasingly valuable. Agricultural water rights are based on the amount of water put to beneficial use over a long period of time. If your water use is not fully covered by a water right, it is just a matter of time before the excess will be curtailed. Unexpected curtailment can often be avoided by proactively purchasing augmentation water credits to cover any excess use.

Brink, Inc. provides assistance for agricultural water rights holders – both surface and groundwater – in the areas of permitting, historic consumptive use analysis, irrigation system design, and maximization of the value of water rights.
