Water law is a complex subfield of common law where regulations are implemented and statutory laws regarding the rights, usage and consumption of one of the Earth’s most precious resources are overseen. Common law is developed through decisions of the court while statutory law refers to regulations varying from administrative laws, common laws and others created by various court decisions.
With so many rules and regulations to follow and uphold, an attorney is routinely needed to assist individuals, commercial and residential real estate developers, governmental entities and non-profit water supply corporations with their legal needs concerning water law.
