Taking the Plunge: Lessons Learned from Water System Consolidations
With a wide patchwork of water systems servicing residents across California, there have been ongoing efforts by the Legislature to encourage the consolidation of smaller water systems to take advantage of scale economies and improve system reliability and compliance with drinking water standards.
On March 23, 2021, our Water Law Group shared their insights into this evolving landscape during a complimentary webinar, “Taking the Plunge: Lessons Learned from Water System Consolidations."
During the webinar, our attorneys and a special guest from the State Water Resources Control Board discussed:
- California Water Providers and the role of water system consolidations;
- Consolidation challenges following wildfires and other potential issues;
- Local Agency Formation Commissions’ (LAFCO) key role in regional water planning; and
- The State Water Resources Control Board’s authority and activities in water system consolidation programs.
