Water law: In California, what can be more important than that?

When we refer to "a complicated statutory and regulatory scheme" that applies to water rights and law in California, we really mean it.

We make that reference on a page of our website that addresses the basic history and contours of water law in California. And we note further therein that water-related statutes and case law in the state are products of a lengthy historical amalgamation -- a complex interplay, if you will -- that liberally mixes old Spanish and Mexican precepts based on a civil-law tradition with centuries-old English law and "a highly developed environmental protection ethic characteristic of contemporary California values."

What do you get with a recipe like that?

Foremost, you get complexity. Secondarily, you get a virtual assurance that every party in the state that is involved in any manner with a water-related environmental issue is decidedly serious about the matter.

For obvious reasons, water-based issues can be tremendously important for businesses of all types in California, whether they are manufacturers of some product, real-estate developers, agricultural enterprises or some other entity.

The bottom line in a water-related matter -- whether it concerns use rights, allegations of polluting activities, permit applications, public hearings or additional issues -- often goes to the very heart of business viability.

And that makes water law a tremendously important topic in California.

The Southern California environmental law firm of Caufield & James, LLP, well appreciates the varied concerns our clients relate to us regarding legal matters pertaining to water in the state. We provide representation across the entire spectrum of water-related issues, and welcome questions and comments from readers concerning any aspect of this vitally important legal sphere.
