Tule River Water Right Settlement

The Tule River Tribe is currently engaged in Water Rights settlement negotiations with the United States

 

The Tule River Tribe is currently engaged in Water Rights settlement negotiations with the United States, acting as trustee for the tribe, and downstream users of water from the South Fork of the Tule River.

The Tribe is represented in the negotiations by the Tule River Water Rights Negotiation Team, under the Chairmanship of Alec Garfield.

The purpose of the on-going negotiations is to confirm under law the federally reserved Water Rights of the Tribe and to secure federal funding to enable the tribe to put its Water Rights to use.

The Tribe’s ultimate goal is to confirm federally reserved water rights sufficient to secure permanent self-sustaining homeland for the Tribe.  The Tribe is cautiously optimistic that the on-going negotiations will result in a fair settlement of the Tribe’s federally reserved water rights.
