Thanks for making CELP's 2nd annual "Water Law and the Public Trust" CLE a success. We appreciate your support!


Washington Water Law & the Public Trust
Water is an increasingly scarce resource in Washington State.  The demands for water are numerous: domestic and municipal, irrigation, agricultural, and for instream flows to sustain water quality, and fish and wildlife.  These demands are increasingly pitted against each other in these hard economic times especially where dynamic population growth is occurring.  Economic growth depends upon water but fish, wildlife, and our very future also depend upon sufficient flows in our rivers and streams.  So how can we return more water to instream uses, and can we do so while fostering growth?

Please join us for the Center for Environmental Law and Policy's 2nd conference on Washington Water Law & the Public Trust: a conference designed to examine recent efforts to restore instream flows, and new developments in water law and policy, with an engaging and expert faculty.
