Are Adjudications an Alternative? How SGMA and Groundwater Adjudications Will Work Together or Not
Carl Blumenstein served as a panelist for "Attorneys Program - Are Adjudications an Alternative? How SGMA and Groundwater Adjudications Will Work Together or Not" during the Association of California Water Agencies' (ACWA) 2018 Spring Conference & Exhibition held May 8-11, 2018 in Sacramento, CA.
As GSA’s statewide begin implementing SGMA by developing groundwater sustainability plans or alternatives, many are evaluating their options to meet sustainability goals, including possible adjudications. This panel discussed what adjudications are, how they work, how 2015 legislation will govern future adjudications, what results from any adjudication, how future adjudications might interact with SGMA and other possible groundwater litigation may occur.
