With the recent flurry of coastal law bills before the California State Legislature and the myriad headlines advising that we must retreat from the shore, sea level rise (SLR) and related climate change topics remain front and center in California. Join our Water Industry Group on May 27, 2021 from 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. PT for "Living on the Edge: Managing Sea Level Rise in California" as we sort through the pending legislation and discuss the basis for this ever-increasing concern with the encroaching ocean.
Comprised of attorneys from Nossaman’s Water, Environment & Land Use and Eminent Domain & Valuation Groups, our panel will evaluate current thinking on the legal risks and ramifications of sea level rise for property owners, public agencies and local governments through the lens of their own first-hand experience with the California courts, environmental agencies and activists. Topics covered will include:
- Building coastal resiliency for critical infrastructure and protection of existing development;
- Divergent opinions and models on SLR and what the data is showing;
- A review of key pending SLR legislation in California and where it may be headed; and
- Risks and possible solutions for coastal public agencies and property owners.
You won't want to miss this important discussion on a topic that is crucial to the future of development and environmental stewardship in California. Our panel will also devote time for a substantive Q&A session following their 60-minute presentation, so we invite you to submit your questions while registering or during the webinar.
