Riparian Doctrine or Riparian Rights is a system for allocating water among those who possess land with a water source. Private consumptive rights in a natural watercourse, one of the main classifications in Riparian Rights, are governed by the Riparian Doctrine, the basic tenet of which is that a party owning land abutting a watercourse has the right to make reasonable uses of the water in that watercourse for the benefit of his riparian land. Because these use rights arise as incidents to ownership of land abutting a watercourse, they generally are considered to be vested property rights. As the holder of vested rights, a riparian proprietor can seek protection of his rights at law or in equity and cannot be deprived of them by the state without due process. Many state constitutions acknowledge that all men are by nature free and equal and have certain inalienable rights, including the right to defend life, to own property and to pursue safety and happiness. It may be implied from these constitutional provisions that a man's "inalienable rights" include the ability to obtain those things upon which basic survival is based, i.e. water!!
