“Water Rights 101” Workshop Available for Land Managers

Washington Water Trust, Okanogan Land Trust, and Okanogan Conservation District are co-hosting a workshop focused on water rights and conservation. The hosting organizations share a common strategy of working collaboratively with landowners and water right holders to help them achieve water quantity and water quality improvements, particularly in light of both drought and flood risks.

The one-hour workshop will provide information to anyone using water for irrigation or livestock. Specific topics include understanding water rights, water conservation practices, and the programs and resources available to land managers related to water quality and quantity. Those with specific water rights questions can also get one-on-one assistance after the presentations and become acquainted with water rights information that is available on the internet.

There are three options for those who would like to attend:

Oroville City Hall Meeting Room: Monday, Jan. 25th at 6:30 p.m.

Okanogan PUD Meeting Room: Tuesday, Jan. 26th at noon, and again at 6:30 p.m.
