Save the Date!

We will discuss how to protect your water supply and prepare your business for the emerging "water wars" in California.

  • Brief history of water rights, from Pueblo Rights to newfangled Integrated Rights
  • Water rights in California today (adjudications, State Water Resources Control Board)
  • Agricultural rights in California (priority, risks, management)
  • Adjudicating water rights (process, timing, results)
  • Conjunctive uses (types, pilot projects, legal framework)
  • New emerging California water wars (strain of fast population growth, protection of endangered species, historical and new ag use and diminishing water quality)

Presented by land use attorneys Ella Foley-Gannon, Geoff Willis and Doug Wance
