Conference Highlights


Dear Colleague:

Stay on top of the latest policies that affect your region, whether from the water agencies, the legislature or the courts.

At our newly consolidated Conference, water law experts will educate and update you on current issues and will answer questions about your concerns and projects. Understand the issues that affect your work, as you learn from the experts who are shaping Texas water law and policy.

Attendees will benefit from a comprehensive case update and overview of challenges confronting the 85th Texas Legislature. A panel of thoughtful water professionals will expand your views about changing water management in Texas. In addition, you will hear in-depth analysis of specific water management issues including groundwater rights, land use, brackish groundwater, contested permit applications, conservation, regional planning, water reuse, environmental flows, surface water, the Edwards Aquifer Authority, and water markets and transfers.

It doesn`t get any better (or more fun) than this. We look forward to seeing you in September!
