Trinity County Water Rights Workshop
Salmonid Restoration Federation (SRF), Five Counties Salmonid Conservation Program, and Trout Unlimited hosted a water rights workshop for rural residential landowners at the Weaverville Library Meeting room on Thursday, January 28 from 5:30 to 7:30pm.
The workshop highlighted California water law, including riparian and appropriative rights and related water laws. Landowners, realtors, planners, and Trinity County residents who wanted to learn about water rights and options for improving water security are encouraged to attend. There was a clinic component to help landowners fill out Small Domestic Use or other permitting paperwork.
The workshop instructor was Matt Clifford, JD who is a staff attorney with Trout Unlimited and has provided water rights assistance throughout California to landowners who are developing water conservation projects that benefit fish.
