Summit Services | Water Rights

In the West, we know the lifeblood of the Great Basin's arid landscape is the ebb and flow of water. There is nothing more important to our communities within intermountain West than the myriad issues surrounding water rights. The Water Rights team at Summit is prepared to handle all aspects of Nevada Water Law. We have the experience to represent our client's interests as a liaison with all pertinent agencies, including the Nevada State Engineer's Office, Washoe County Water Resources, the Truckee Meadows Water Authority, the cities of Reno and Sparks, and all municipalities within the state. Water Rights are a fundamental part of development, recreation, mining and ranching. Our skilled and well-established staff has the ability to determine the water resource requirements and acquisition necessary to support any project.
