Arizona Water Law 101

In this virtual Coffee Break from Sept. 14, 2023, presenter Michael Van Alsburg, a Tucson lawyer who grew up in southern Arizona and who’s currently co-chair of Sky Island Alliance’s board of directors, dives into one of the most important topics in our region: water. His talk touches on the legal framework around water in Arizona and related issues affecting groundwater, surface-water rights, and regulation. This is a great starting point for all who are curious about how it all works or who want to be a key player in the conversation in coming years.
