Join us for a 1 hour MCLE that covers a brief overview of water law. The course is divided into four areas: Water Rights, Water Quality, navigable waters, and Water Service. Water rights covers the history of California water rights. Water quality covers the regulation of water pollution. Navigable waters covers the regulation of wetlands, dredging, and surface use of waterways. Water service covers water delivery and infrastructure, including recently announced state responses to the drought. Key water rights doctrines, major laws, and recent legislation will be highlighted.
