KMTG Will Host MCLE Presentation By Delta Watermaster

On Friday, December 14, from 12 p.m. to 1 p.m. (pacific time), Kronick Moskovitz Tiedemann & Girard (KMTG) will be hosting a brown-bag lunch MCLE event, entitled "What is the Delta Watermaster's Role in Addressing California's Water Issues? Learn the Answers from the Delta Watermaster Himself, Craig Wilson."

In 2009, the California State Legislature passed major water reform legislation. Among other things, that legislation created the position of Delta Watermaster. The Legislature's intent in creating the Delta Watermaster is hotly debated. Some say it was to crack down on allegedly illegal water diversions in the Delta. Others say the position’s focus on Delta water diversions simply distracts attention from other causes of decline in the Delta ecosystem. The purpose of this program is to hear from the Delta Watermaster, Craig Wilson, about the activities undertaken in the two-plus years since the position was created and about planned future activities. These activities range from compliance and enforcement actions, investigations of water use, and preparation of policy level reports on key water issues.

The event is sponsored by the Environmental Law Section and Natural Resources Subsection of the Real Propery Section of the California State Bar.  The event may be attended at the KMTG Sacramento office or by webinar.  Attendees are eligible for 1.0 MCLE credit.  The event will be moderated by Rebecca Akroyd of KMTG.

To register for the webinar, please visit the State Bar's website.

To attend in-person, at the KMTG Sacramento Office (400 Capitol Mall, 27th Floor, Sacramento, CA 95814), please e-mail Lindsey Ono at
