Water Law Attorney, Monterey County, California

Water is a valuable resource anywhere and even more so in arid California. In areas of the state of California, the climate is dry half the year. To preserve the quantity and quality of water available for all consumers, complex rules and regulations govern water use. Property developers, as well as high-volume water users such as agricultural businesses often have water law issues that are best handled by an experienced lawyer. Robert J. Ernst is the past chairman of the Monterey Peninsula Water Management District.

To discuss water usage rules and regulations with an experienced California water law attorney, contact me, water law attorney Robert J. Ernst, III, regarding any of the following:

  • Wells
  • Water associations / private well companies
  • Water contamination and clean up
  • Compliance with government regulations
  • Water Quality regulation

I represent water associations, water companies, farmers, and nursery operators with regard to private wells, salt water intrusion, water runoff, and other issues of agricultural water usage.
