Do people up river have more of a right to the water?



  1. 0 Votes

    Water rights are a tricky subject, but according to the use-based right of water law, the rights go foremost to the person that was there first. So if someone is making use of the water and another individual comes later, the first person has more of a right to the water even if the second individual perched further up the river. Where water resources are more scarce, the water rights and distribution is much more contentious.
