Exploring the Complexity of Water Rights Investing

The Seattle Times published an in-depth two-part series looking into recent challenges and proposed solutions of investing in water rights in Washington State. The articles spotlight the Chewuch Canal in the Methow Valley and a farm in the Palouse as two examples of different perspectives on water banking, the state’s Trust Water Rights Program, and what it means for the future of water in some of the state’s most sought-after agricultural centers.

Given Aspect’s experience with thousands of water rights projects as well as the majority of the state’s water banks, we welcome discussion on the complex topic of water rights investing in the Pacific Northwest.
