RWG attorneys continue to be active in litigating water allocation issues as firm attorneys have done since 1969. Included in that litigation are multiple major groundwater adjudications, including the Cummings Basin adjudication, the Main San Gabriel adjudication, the Chino Basin adjudication, the Central Basin adjudication, the Mojave River adjudication, the Six Basin adjudication, the Santa Maria adjudication and the Antelope Valley adjudication. That litigation includes months of trial time, appearances in the Court of Appeals on behalf of groups of water producers and the representation of the public water supplier parties to the Mojave adjudication in the California Supreme Court. RWG offers the services of experienced and effective groundwater rights litigators to clients who wish to protect or establish production rights.
In addition, RWG services are available to persons, entities and organizations who wish to challenge water rate structures proposed by public entities or regulated water utilities. RWG also offers expert representation concerning asserted Tribal water rights, and to water producers and Groundwater Sustainability Agencies involved in the creation and implementation of basin sustainability plans. We also offer services to regulators or private entities on water quality issues, including CERCLA and related issues and groundwater basin contamination disputes.
