California’s Changing Water Picture: Governance, Water Supply, Flood Control, and Climate Change Adaptation

April 22-23, 2010

Argent Communications 25th Annual California Water Law and Policy Conference

Downey Brand is pleased to sponsor the 25th Annual California Water Law & Policy Conference on April 22-23, 2010 in San Francisco. Downey Brand water law attorneys Scott Shapiro (Conference Co-Chair) and Kevin O'Brien are presenting.
Water supply management and flood control have always been prime concerns in California's water picture.  At this year's comprehensive two-day conference we bring you the "big" topics affecting the state: analysis of hte implications of the landmark legislative changes enacted last year, both immediate, and as they affect water law itself; renewed federal involvement in California's water problems; and sessions on flood control, water transfers and conjunction use, and the regulation of "new" sources of water.  This conference will also bring you up-to-speed on how climate change is affecting California's water picture, and what the future holds in this regard.
  • Kevin O'Brien will discuss "Water Users Impacts: Upstream, In-Delta and Export"
  • Scott Shapiro will moderate the panel on "Like Slogging Through Mud: The Challenges of Implementing a Flood Protection Project in 2010" and provide a "Critical Overview of Day Two"
