On February 24th-25th, water law attorneys, water experts, and economists from across the nation gathered in San Diego to attend the Annual Super Water Law Conference sponsored by the American Bar Association’s section of Environment, Energy and Resources. The conference began with a basic overview of riparian and prior appropriation law and went on to discuss issues currently facing both riparian and prior appropriation states. Aside from water rights, the conference touched on cost-benefit analysis, water quality, watershed governance, floodplain safety, the Endangered Species Act, and Tribal water rights, among other other topics. This annual conference provides a unique opportunity for lawyers and experts to engage in a broad discussion on water issues faced by local governments around the nation.
