The Montezuma County Sheriff’s Office in partnership with the Division of Water Resource, Montezuma Valley Irrigation, the Mancos Water Conservancy District, and the Dolores Water Conservancy District will be hosting a 3 hour course titled Water Law 101.
The course is intended for all community members involved in any aspect of irrigation water and who desire additional knowledge on their rights and responsibilities.
The information presented will assist water consumers in understanding the roles of the agencies involved and the water districts they subscribe too.
Areas covered will include both civil and criminal ramifications pertaining to water law and water usage. It is our desire to impart information onto the community in hopes of alleviating conflict between stakeholders during the water season.
