Many properties are without water rights. Those within a city served by public utilities, rural properties that are undeveloped, rural properties with a well may not have water rights. We deal with these issues a lot. Properties in our market may have water rights affiliated with irrigation canals that were built over 100 years ago to water the dry high desert and make it possible to grow crops. These rights to the water run with the land, but can be lost if not used. But the right to water is not something every property has.

As in Riparian? Or Littoral? There could be many reasons. Just because you live on or near water does not guarantee rights to use.

Water rights just like mineral rights can be separated from the land they are associated with. It is very common here in AZ for owners with large tracts of land to sell their water rights to a developer of adjacent properties so that they meet the requirements to build subdivisions or even commercial property. Check the deed to see what you own.

Water rights are only a "thing" in some locations. We don't have such a thing here. Properties either dig a well, which they own, or use municpal water which they don't own.

I never really heard of water rights until we were looking at property out west.

no municipal water lines, no well, no riparian rights - river water belongs to someone else, was deed restricted to someone or an entity, some states restrict the right to catch or save rainwater and roof water,  - no rights means you need to buy water from whoever owns the water
