Law & Water Column, American Water Works Association Journal, March 2009

Attorneys in Brownstein's Water Group author the monthly "Law & Water" column in the American Water Works Association Journal. Each column provides valuable legal insight in the form of case summaries of interest to water utilities across the U.S.

March's column discusses what makes water supply assessments (WSA) adequate, and what determines the boundaries that are used to measure groundwater sufficiency.

This month's article also discusses how a municipal water authority in Pennsylvania was able to act as a township agent in order to enforce a township ordinance requiring connection to a public water system.
