Presentation Overview:

8:30-10:00: Water Supply Law 101. An understanding of basic principles of California water law is necessary to successfully navigate California's show-me-the-water! laws, which require discussion of the legal reliability of supplies for existing and future development. This session surveys basic water rights, including surface water, groundwater and contract rights. Rules applicable to rights acquired prior to 1914 and the State Water Resources Control Board system are also described, as are key water allocation principles, like the priority system, reasonable and beneficial use, and the public trust doctrine.

10:15-12:00: Successfully Navigating California's Show-Me-The-Water! Laws. What are these laws, how are they applied today, and what are practical options for enhancing legal defensibility of development approvals and land-use planning decisions? SB 610 Water Supply Assessments, CEQA review of water supply impacts, and SB 221 Water Sufficiency Verifications will be covered with an emphasis on practical approaches for responding to common water supply adequacy issues, like reliance on existing versus planned future water sources and the role of conservation design, alternative water supplies (recycled water), water banking and water transfers to address existing water shortages and uncertainty about long-term supply reliability.
