• Description

Transactions involving water rights have been taking place in Western States for many decades. Although publications, which describe sales and leases of water rights, exist, never has a broad focused database been created reflecting the details of these types of transactions. The purpose of this report is to provide a database that compiles and reports some of the details of these transactions including the entities involved, the number of acrefeet of water sold or leased, and the prices paid per acre-foot of leased or purchased water rights. This information is provided in tables for all possible transactions listed in both the Water Strategist and Water Intelligence Monthly publications for the period 1990 to 2001.
