Water Rights Reforms - Are Changes Needed to Our Water Rights and Pricing Systems?

State Bar of California 2016 Environmental Law Conference

Best Best & Krieger LLP Partner Kelly Salt will serve as a panelist on “Water Rights Reforms — Are Changes Needed to our Water Rights and Pricing System?” at the State Bar of California Environmental Law Section’s 2016 Environmental Law Conference.

California’s historic drought has generated debate about how water should be allocated as well as new proposals for reform. In 2015, the Legislature enacted changes beefing up water measurement requirements for surface water diverters, and strengthening the State’s enforcement authority. More expansive water rights reforms have been proposed. Litigation is also ongoing that challenges water rates created to encourage water conservation, which potentially conflict with constitutional and other limitations on rate setting. This panel explores whether major changes to our water rights and water pricing systems are desirable, and if so, what they may be.
