This publication consists of two tables with information regarding water rights among the states. Table 1 summarizes each state’s common law water rights for both surface and percolating ground water, as well as whether the state has statutory rules that modify the common law rule. Table 2 briefly summarizes the type of regulated riparian requirements, the threshold at which the requirements apply, grandfathered water withdrawals and exemptions for those states that have regulated riparian rules.
