Jan. 30 Water Insights Seminar: What Is Water Law And Why Should Scientists Care?

The January 30 Water Insights Seminar will feature Lara Fowler, Penn State Law, will give a presentation entitled, “What Is Water Law And Why Should Scientists Care?” starting at Noon.
While water management is driven by hydrology, it is also heavily affected by the legal system. This talk will provide a short overview of how water is allocated in the eastern and western United States, as well as between different states.
The talk will also briefly cover how the laws governing water allocation also impact questions of water quality, stormwater and flooding, and a few other hot topics in the legal world. Come prepared to ask questions.
The Seminar will be held from Noon to 1:00 p.m. in Room 102 of the Forest Resources Building at Penn State University in State College.  Click Here to attend the Seminar by webinar (sign in with your name and email).
