Water Law

Across the parched American West, the past several years of drought have set off a series of fierce legal and political battles over who controls an increasingly dear treasure — water.  California, in particular, is truly the "Wild West" when it comes to all matters "water" and the State's geologic richness measured against the State's extensive body of case law and government regulation fuels and drives the complexity of water jurisprudence.
