This paper will discuss the current state of riparian rights in Georgia, particularly in the irrigation context. There will be a discussion of the history of the riparian doctrine, including its origins and application in Georgia. The paper will then discuss fully the Pyle v. Gilbert decision, exploring the extensions that the Georgia Supreme Court has made in Georgia's riparian law. This will lead to a conclusion that the dramatic alterations in the riparian doctrine may have frustrated its original purposes.
