IRVINE, CA – Craig Beam and Kathryn Casey of the Firm’s Land Use Development and Environmental Services Groups were featured panelists at the 2012 California Water Law & Policy Conference held on April 19-20 in San Francisco.
Mr. Beam’s presentation, entitled “Municipal Separate Storm System MS4 Permits and Storm Water Regulation,” will discuss Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (“MS4”) permits, storm water regulation and their potential inconsistency with local land use planning approvals.
Ms. Casey’s presentation, entitled, “Mitigating the Decline of Air Quality Impact Mitigation at the Salton Sea,” will focus on recent developments in the QSA litigation and how the current mitigation scheme is not enforceable under the California Environmental Quality Act (CEQA). Ms. Casey will also discuss the existing and continuing harm that is occurring at the Salton Sea as a result of the QSA and water transfers and the implications on public health, as well as the imminent need to mitigate these impacts before the Sea permanently transforms into a toxic dust bowl.
Hosted by Argent Communications Group, the conference will focus on the impact of recent litigation and regulation on the ever-changing landscape of California water law and policy. For more information and registration, click HERE
