Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basin Adjudication (CFPRBA)

Active Adjudication

The State of Idaho filed a petition requesting the 5th District Court to commence the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basins Adjudication, a legal process in which a court reviews and confirms all existing water rights in the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basins within the state of Idaho.

This adjudication will review all water rights held by local, state, and federal governments, Native American tribes, and private property owners. The court petition includes a request that gives water users in the Clark Fork-Pend Oreille River Basins the option of deferring the filing of small domestic and stockwater claims.

The Clark Fork Adjudication is the third phase of the Northern Idaho Adjudication, following Coeur d’Alene River Basin Adjudication (CSRBA) and the Palouse River Basin Adjudication (PRBA).
