As you can tell there is plenty of science and opinion involved in these discussions. One thing seems clear to me, we are using or soon will be using more water than we have available. The opportunity to purchase irrigated farm and ranch land is today. The chances this land with water rights is going to get any less expense in the seems very slim.
Today's Investors are buying water rights. Who is buying these Water Rights?
Water Rights laws and use are complicated, yet many parcels with water rights are available today, some at very reasonable prices.
