Understanding the Water Rights Lawsuit

Local water users who rely on private wells or surface water–including homeowners as well as farmers–will receive court summons via mail likely during Summer 2024, requiring them to file details about their water use with the Whatcom County Superior Court, or be at risk of losing their access to water.

Included below are the individual presentations from a special informational event held in Lynden on the evening of Wednesday, March 27th, 2024, to help water users make sure they’re prepared for Washington State Department of Ecology’s upcoming water rights adjudication court case.

At this event, several top water rights experts guided attendees through the process of filing with the court, including important details about documenting their specific water rights and historical water use.
