Northern Idaho Adjudication
The 2006 Legislature authorized IDWR to proceed with planning and designing the administrative mechanisms for commencing the first of three water right adjudications in Northern Idaho beginning with the Coeur d'Alene-Spokane River drainage. Adjudication staff for the Northern Idaho Adjudication will work in the Coeur dí Alene office with support staff in Boise.
The Court issued a Commencement Order November 12, 2008, making the United States, the Tribes, the State, local governments, as well as private property owners parties to the adjudication of all water rights in the Coeur d'Alene/Spokane rivers water system. Commencement notices to property owners will be sent over two years informing each of the need to file claims for water rights.
