How Can Water Rights Mediation Resolve a Water Rights Dispute?
Water is the basis of survival for the society at large and for individuals. Without water our chances of survival are completely diminished and this is one of the reasons why a water rights issue can quickly become emotional and quite complicated. When one of these disputes comes to light the battle can last for a very long time as it is dragged through the court system.
Mediation is a much better choice when it comes to dealing with disputes over water rights. A mediator can help both sides arrive at a solution that would satisfy everybody involved at a lower cost than traditional litigation and at a faster speed.
When rights are in conflict in regards to the control, use and ownership of water, things can get pretty heated quickly and become extremely complex. The role of the mediator is to take the complications out of the equation and get back to the original matter at hand. When all parties can look at things with an objective viewpoint, things can get resolved very quickly.
When land changes hands or the construction of a commercial development or residential project is being planned, the question of water rights may come up. The first action that takes place is often to pick up the phone and call an attorney. This can lead to an expensive legal battle that doesn’t do anyone any good except for the lawyers involved.
