As water resource demands continue to increase throughout California, including in its Central or San Joaquin Valley, farms and businesses have to deal increasingly with California’s water laws. Water is a limited resource in California and many interests are competing for access and use. This includes farms, industry, cities, and residential use.
Water law can include both transactions and litigation. In water law transactions, your attorney can negotiate water rights, prepare water access contracts, and ensure compliance with state and local regulations. When there are disputes over water access, water use, or water quality, your litigation attorney can file or respond to civil court claims to enforce agreements and seek money damages.
In our years of experience as California water law attorneys, we have helped small business owners, family-owned farms, and large corporations guarantee water access and plan for future water use. Contact Zimmer & Melton, LLP, for help with your California water law issues.
