We purchased and paid for property that included valuable riparian water rights, as recorded on the title to our land. Water rights that included indoor use, watering our crops and livestock.

We have NOT been compensated BY WA State or the APPOINTED WA State DOE. for THE VALUE OF WATER RIGHTS TAKEN NOR FOR THE LOSS OF PROPERTY VALUE DUE TO THE TAKING OF OUR RIPARIAN WATER RIGHTS.
