Negotiated the "Monterey Agreement"

We helped negotiate the "Monterey Agreement," resolving long-standing disputes between agricultural and municipal water contractors over water allocations in the California State Water Project. In 2005 we helped a number of parties resolve a major water quality dispute in the San Joaquin River Basin in California that had been in litigation since 1964. We also successfully mediated negotiations among the federal and state water contractors in California -- the Bureau of Reclamation and the California Department of Water Resources -- that resolved a number of major outstanding issues concerning the operation of the Central Valley Project and the State Water Project.
