TWIN FALLS — The end is near for processing thousands of Idaho water right claims. It’s just not here yet. For several years, water officials have said the Snake River Basin Adjudication (SRBA) process is nearing completion, but a firm deadline has proven to be elusive. District Judge Eric Wildman — who presides over the Twin Falls-based SRBA Court — estimated almost a year ago that the process would be done by this spring. That’s been pushed back about a year, said Paul Harrington, staff attorney at the court.
