The American Water Works Association (AWWA) announced a new webcast that will highlight the legal issues surrounding water source development concerns. The webcast, “Strategies for Water Source Development - The Legal Aspects,” will be held Wednesday, Jan. 24, 2007.
The water supply community is facing increasingly difficult challenges in bringing supplemental water supplies on line for future needs, especially in light of population explosion in certain areas of North America. Because of a lack of new supplies, the quantity of existing water supplies must be protected. The webcast explores the legal issues water utilities face through case studies from both the eastern and western U.S.
Speakers include: Adam Gravley, partner and water law attorney at Buck & Gorden, LLP; William Falcone, retired staff director of Rhode Island Water Resources Board; and a staff member of the Metropolitan Water District of Southern California.
