Water Rights And Resources
Owners of waterfront property enjoy special rights in adjacent lakes or streams—rights that often account for a substantial percentage of the property’s value. Wheeler’s water law team has represented scores of riparian property owners to ensure the protection of these rights including obtaining necessary permits to place piers, taking action to protect shoreland, and helping to ensure that neighboring property uses do not put your property at risk. . Because of its wealth of water resources, Wisconsin’s navigable waters law is well-developed but also perennially subject to legislative changes.
