Searching Water Right Records

Revised: March 26, 2004

The Utah Division of Water Rights maintains a documentary file for each water right in the State of Utah. A water right file typically contains applications, correspondence, and other documents which pertain to the right. These paper documents are electronically scanned and can be accessed through this query page.

The Division also maintains a computerized database of limited pertinent information for each water right. Various search and listing routines are available to access the database information quickly and easily. Discrepancies between the information in the computerized database and that in the documentary file will generally be resolved in favor of the documentary file.
