Many tribes have rights to significant quantities of water. In some cases, the quantity is greater than the tribe’s existing needs or in excess of the tribe’s existing delivery capacity. Aqua believes tribal water rights have significant value and, in some cases, are underutilized. Because of our water market experience we are uniquely positioned to assist tribes in evaluating their various alternatives for marketing their rights.
Municipalities and water utilities are entrusted with delivering a reliable and safe drinking water supply to their customers at an economical price. Aqua has experience working with municipalities and water utilities by providing them with solutions to meet their current and future water supply requirements.
Financial institutions, such as investment companies and banks, may have exposure to water rights in their portfolios. Aqua has experience working with financial institutions by assisting them to identify, value and understand the water rights in their existing portfolios. Furthermore, we have provided financial institutions with solutions that allow them to monetize their water rights.
Securing a long-term and affordable water supply is a challenge faced by many construction and development projects in water-scarce regions.
