Water Rights and Water Quality: Interrelationships and Implications

Understand the applicable laws and the intersection between water rights and water quality.

Water rights and water quality issues are interrelated, but most legal frameworks tend to focus on one or the other. An understanding of the applicable laws and the intersection between the two fields is essential to anyone whose work involves water. Regardless of how you use water--municipal water supplies, commercial processes, agriculture, or mining--the diversion, use, and return or disposal of the water must comply with the law.
