Description Anderson will review the legal issues surrounding Indian water rights. Indian reserved water rights are based on federal law.

Anderson will provide examples of litigation due to open-ended decrees (lack of certainty), allotment water rights, and extensive non-Indian development. He will also review several settlements.
