Why You Should Attend
California is in the midst of an historic drought. Surface water deliveries are at an all-time low and many groundwater basins are being significantly drawn down. As the State, other public agencies, and private interests struggle with how to maintain supplies in the short and long term, as well as protect the environment and comply with environmental regulations, understanding how hydrology and the law interrelate has never been more important.
This informative seminar will explain the basics of hydrology and how it interacts with the law in California for the benefit of practitioners in both fields. In particular, leading experts in both fields will examine the relationship between hydrology and the law as it relates to water quality, endangered species, Sustainable Groundwater Management Act and proposed groundwater legislation, as well as how hydrology comes into play during litigation.
This intensive seminar will help practitioners in both fields improve their overall understanding of these very interrelated fields just as water issues are front page news.
