California’s Complicated Water Rights System to be Explained at Water 101 Workshop
California’s complicated water rights system was highlighted in the last few years as water rights were curtailed by state regulators due to the drought. That action prompted some water rights holders to go to court to retain their rights. Others called for a revamping of the water rights system all together.
Arguments aside, what’s the difference between a senior water right and a junior water right as highlighted in many news articles? Or a riparian right and an appropriative right? And how are they determined?
Those questions and more will be explained in easy-to-understand terms by Jennifer Harder, a law professor at McGeorge Law School during our Water 101 Workshop on Feb. 4 in West Sacramento.
Participants at last year’s workshop lauded Ms. Harder’s presentation.
