This episode is part two of a three-part series on water here in Utah.
In Part one we focus on water resources. In Part two we discuss water rights,
and in part three we focus on drinking water.
You can find all of our episodes in our podcast feed or wherever you find your podcasts.
Today's show is part two in the water series and we’re talking with Lee Eschler from DNR’s Division of Water Rights.
Lee tells us how the PLSS section corners are a critical piece to water rights in Utah including the locating, purchasing, and the selling of these rights.
He also explains the current water rights situation for water in and around the Great Salt Lake and how there are no new water rights being granted on water that flows into the Lake
Then we discuss a bit on adjudication and how it gives the state a better understanding of what is and what is not being used and how this is an ongoing process
So sit back and take a moment to enjoy the show.
