How Do I Find the Names of Officers and Directors of Irrigation and Canal Companies?

Have you ever tried to find out who the president of an irrigation or canal company is? Or have you ever tried to find out who the other officers and directors of an irrigation or canal company are? Here are a few places you can try:

The Utah Division of Water Rights maintains a list of water companies. The companies are listed alphabetically by county. As a caveat, the list is not always up to date and some companies have more listed information than others. Click here to access the list.

Most irrigation companies and canal companies are nonprofit corporations, so they are registered with the Utah Division of Corporations. The Division has a Business Entity Search, which allows you to search for a company. The basic search is free, but the results only list the company's registered agent. To see the officers and directors, you can click on the "Access Principal Information" bottom at the bottom of the page, but there is a $1.00 fee. Click here to access the Business Entity Search.

Also, if you are a shareholder in an irrigation company or canal company, then you have the right to request a list of the names and addresses of the current officers and directors of the company. Click here for more information.

Some water providers are not private companies, but are districts. For a list of service districts, click here.
