Denver, CO (PRWEB) July 19, 2011
The attorneys of Trout, Raley, Montaño, Witwer & Freeman, P.C. have updated and expanded “Acquiring, Using, and Protecting Water in Colorado”. In addition to updating all the law, the authors have added new chapters on Conservation Easements, Temporary Use Agreements, and Interstate Compacts.
“Acquiring, Using, and Protecting Water in Colorado” provides crucial information about all aspects of water rights and water quality relevant to Colorado water users. A collaborative effort by some of Colorado’s most talented water law experts, this book explains basic and complex water law issues, regulatory concerns, and future trends in easily understood language. The authors discuss the distribution, beneficial use, and conservation of water, as well as environmental issues and business aspects related to acquiring, using, and protecting water rights in Colorado.
More than just a general overview, this book is a one-stop resource that contains many citations to Colorado and federal statutes and Colorado water law cases. It also covers the sections of the Colorado Constitution that are devoted to water and its use. The appendix contains a glossary of terms, conversion tables for water volumes and flow rates, and listings of water organizations that include federal, state, and local agencies.
Originally intended for use by people who are not water law professionals but who must use, manage, or otherwise deal with water rights in Colorado, Acquiring, Using, and Protecting Water in Colorado has also become an increasingly popular reference for the professionals who work in this important field. The book includes a table of authorities, as well as a detailed index for ready reference.
