I live in an agricultural region, so it is very common... even on residential properties where there are fractional shares involved.

Our brokerage deals with these regularly for rural properties. Water rights are a big issue in the Central Oregon high desert - and having water can determine whether or not you can utilize the property the way you intend. Loss of water can destroy the economic vitality of a property.

Not so uncommon. But not in the context you want.

Here the issue is the neighbor installed an elevated patio and the other neighbor directed their gutters to the fence line. Now the subject owner yard gets flooded by storm water runoff every rain.

It is the water right to NOT get flooded because of changes neighbors make.
