Mono Lake @ 20: Past, Present, & Future
A UC Berkeley law symposium
To mark the 20th anniversary of Decision 1631, the UC Berkeley Center for Law, Energy & the Environment organized a one-day symposium on the theme of the public trust doctrine on November 17, 2014.
The landmark D1631 was issued by the California State Water Resources Control Board to amend the Los Angeles Department of Water & Power's water rights in order to protect Mono Lake and its tributary streams. It has been shaping California water law ever since.
Scientists, lawyers, justices, policy-makers, agency staff, and students all convened at the CalEPA headquarters in Sacramento for a day of looking intensely at D1631 and the Mono Basin. The day included discussions about where things stand after 20 years, and how we go forward from here.
Here are the symposium videos from the California State Water Resources Control Board website:
