When we supply know-how, you supply water.

A true industry leader in the water sciences and with more than 30 years of experience in water resources and water-rights engineering, RESPEC values relationships based on mutual trust and respect throughout the process of identifying and acquiring water rights.

Under expert leadership in water-rights engineering, RESPEC provides clients with a wide range of consulting and engineering services to properly develop, use, manage, and protect water and land resources.  Our professionals have extensive experience in evaluating water rights, developing water augmentation plans, and determining consumptive use from different water uses. We have completed over 100 projects in the area of water-rights engineering for both public and private clients.  Our team also provides on-call consulting engineering services and assists municipalities and water providers in identifying available groundwater rights that can be included in their future water supply strategies.

RESPEC’s water-rights professionals have extensive experience in performing engineering analyses; producing expert reports; and preparing and answering discovery requests, including preparing interrogatories, documents, and strategies.  We provide client support and assistance to council, give depositions, perform exhibit and trial preparation, participate in settlement negotiations, and provide expert testimony at hearings and trials in water court.
