No, it can have water rights from wells, ditch rights, creeks etc.

The simple answer is no. Many homes in Northern Nevada have water rights and are far from a river or any stream. Their rights almost always emanate from a stream or river.... but most are delivered to the property from a complex system of irrigation ditches. Of course we're talking about surface irrigation water rights here. Underground rights are a whole other subject.

There are many variables to the term "water rights" and they change from State to State. There are also different types of water rights such as riparian or use-based. To obtain an accurate understanding of water rights in the State of Nevada, I would refer you to the following site: http://water.nv.gov/waterrights

One comment I will make is that just because a property has water rights does not mean it is on or even near a river. Generally, a river is not the direct source of water used for domestic water service as there is no purification or delivery process. A ground well is a domestic water source.

You have a property reference of 7995 Oak Creek Drive in Reno. That property does not have water rights as you may or may not know.

Hope this has been of assistance to you.

You could have water rights and not be on a river or a lake. There are underground water rights as well as ditch rights. Some properties already have water rights that come with the property. Let me know if you have any questions.
