“Public Trust in Nevada”

In a case that could have profound effects on water distribution and prior appropriation in Nevada, the Nevada Supreme Court is preparing to answer the following question from the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals: Does the public trust doctrine apply to water rights already adjudicated and settled under the doctrine of prior appropriation and, if so, to what extent? This case has sparked alarm among water users throughout the State, but proponents say that concerns are unfounded, and that the public trust is compatible with current practice and Nevada water law.

This year’s speakeasy will demystify the public trust doctrine. What does it mean and what are the realistic implications of the Court’s decision? How has this played out in other western states? Please join us for a frank discussion about water and the public trust in Nevada.

Moderator: Micheline Fairbank, Deputy Administrator, Nevada Division of Water Resources

  • Edwin James, P.E., Carson Water Subconservancy District

  • Clive Strong, Legal Director for Natural Resources and Environment Conference of Western Attorneys General

  • Bret Birdsong, Professor of Law, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, William Boyd School of Law
