One of the biggest challenges to implementing California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act (SGMA) centers on deciding who gets to pump how much groundwater without changing groundwater rights.
To provide more clarity to groundwater agencies on how to navigate this challenge, Environmental Defense Fund partnered with four leading law experts to develop a law review article that takes a deep dive into the relationship between SGMA and
groundwater rights: “The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act and the Common Law of Groundwater Rights — Finding a Consistent Path Forward for Groundwater Allocation.”
This webinar will feature a panel presentation with the article’s authors, followed by a live discussion with the audience on navigating SGMA allocations and groundwater law.
The panel will feature:
*Eric Garner, Best Best & Krieger LLP
*Christina Babbitt, Environmental Defense Fund
*Russ McGlothlin, O’Melveny & Myers LLP
*Leon Szeptycki, University of Virginia
*Valerie Kincaid, O’Laughlin & Paris LLP
