"South County" - Santa Maria groundwater adjudication

02/09/2008 San Luis Obispo Tribune

Nossaman Partner Henry Weinstock is quoted in the San Luis Obispo Tribune regarding the outcome of the Santa Maria groundwater adjudication, a battle that began over 10 years ago. Nossaman clients Arroyo Grande, Pismo Beach, Grover Beach and the Oceana Community Services district, were granted water rights over a small continent of landowners who were fighting the 2005 settlement agreement.

According to Mr. Weinstock, "the ruling provides water rights to the public agencies and the losing parties have no water rights." Because there is currently a sufficient amount of water in the Santa Maria groundwater basin, the ruling will not limit landowners from pumping water.
