Desert Rivers Handbook

Central to the founding of the Desert Rivers Program was a desire to help clarify some of the complexities of Arizona water rights and highlight potential opportunities for agricultural water conservation. Benefiting Landowners and Desert Rivers: A Water Rights Handbook for Conservation Agreements in Arizona is intended as this go-to reference for farmers and ranchers, partner organizations and anyone looking for an approachable and practical overview of water rights in Arizona.
