Navigating SGMA Groundwater Allocations & Minimizing Legal Risk

Environmental Defense Fund

One of the biggest challenges in implementing California’s Sustainable Groundwater Management Act is deciding who gets to pump how much groundwater in the context of California’s labyrinthine groundwater rights system.
To provide more guidance to Groundwater Sustainability Agencies on how to navigate this challenge, Environmental Defense Fund partnered with four leading law experts, including Best Best & Krieger LLP Managing Partner Eric Garner, to develop a University of California, Los Angeles Journal of Environmental Law & Policy article that takes a deep dive into the relationship between SGMA and groundwater rights: "The Sustainable Groundwater Management Act and the Common Law of Groundwater Rights - Finding a Consistent Path Forward for Groundwater Allocation."

In connection with the article, Eric and his co-authors will present "Navigating SGMA Groundwater Allocations & Minimizing Legal Risk." This free webinar will feature a panel presentation with the article’s authors, followed by a live discussion with the audience on navigating SGMA allocations and groundwater law.
