In California, legal and political conflict over water rights and allocations has erupted as the enduring drought tests the state’s complex system of laws and districts in unprecedented ways.

Come to WGs’ 90th Annual Meeting in San Diego (November 8-11) to hear our roundtable of experts discuss water rights and how the drought is bringing unprecedented public scrutiny to what many farmers consider an iron-clad right.
