On November 12, 2008, the district court ordered the commencement of the Coeur d'Alene-Spokane River Basin Adjudication (CSRBA). The commencement order made 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 which includes the sole source supply of the Spokane Valley Rathdrum Prairie Aquifer. Commencement notices were sent to property owners informing each of the need to file claims for water rights.
