Riparian Water Rights


“What is the most common form of water rights in the Eastern U.S?”

The right to use water is always a vexing legal question. In the Eastern United States, the most common approach is Riparian Water Rights. If a landowner holds property adjacent to a body of water, then they are allowed to make reasonable use of it. The right to this water cannot be transferred independently of the land. The rights travel with the land when it is bought and sold.
