Adjudication will determine the extent and validity of a pre February 24, 1909 vested water uses and/or Federally Reserved Water Rights. It is a legal process to determine who has a valid water right, how much water can be used, and who has priority during shortages. Adjudication provides a thorough accounting of water, which is essential to using, protecting, planning for and selling water. It is essential to resolving and preventing water conflicts in an era of increasing water demands and water supply impacts of climate change. It is a process through which all legally recognized rights will be confirmed.
