A Water Rights Manual for Mutual Domestic Water Consumers Associations

The Utton Center prepared this Water Rights Manual to assist Mutual Domestic Water Consumers Associations (MDWCAs) with the development, protection and management of their water rights. This handbook was prepared in 2011 by Zackary Carpenter and Gregory Chakalian, both of the UNM School of Law Class of 2013; edited by Darcy S. Bushnell; and updated in 2013. This work was made possible by a grant from the McCune Charitable Foundation. The Utton Center thanks the McCune Foundation for its generous support over the years.

This Manual is an educational tool and is not intended to provide or replace legal advice.
