Proprietary Research

Stratecon’s proprietary research service incorporates and builds upon a proprietary database of water transactions throughout the western United States since the 1980s to assist anyone requiring analysis of water markets or water policy issues. The proprietary database results from Stratecon’s publication of Water Strategist (WS) from 1987 through 2010 encompassing data on water marketing and water policy issues in the 17 western states, covering federal agencies, corporate activity, Indian water resources, and environmental and water quality concerns. Stratecon created WS with its team of natural resource economists, policy experts, and researchers to analyze water markets and policy issues affecting the allocation of water resources and the market value of water rights. WS readership represented the broad range of interests: federal and state agencies, landowners, private investors, investment banks, law firms, engineering firms, environmental groups and private individuals.

We encourage you to contact us regarding needs you may have for analysis of water markets or water policy issues.
