Protect and Promote Agricultural Water Rights While Advocating Responsible Stewardship of the Land

Everyone knows that water is critical to nourishing and fostering life. No matter who you are, where you live or what you do, water is vital to your existence. That is why sound management of our water resources is imperative. Indeed, no issue in recent years has captured the attention of the natural resource community as fully as the debates surrounding water policies and management practices. Agricultural communities are particularly influenced by water policy. Farmers, ranchers and other agricultural producers depend on water rights, not only for their own livelihoods, but to produce food and nourishment for others. Truly, water is the very lifeblood of agriculture. This is why our focus is specifically on promoting the agricultural community’s interests in the valuable water resource.
