Complying with Water Rights Law

In collaboration with Trout Unlimited, SRF has developed an online resource for small landowners in Coastal California called Guidance on Complying with California's Water Laws

This new series of web pages provides an overview of state regulatory requirements overseen by the State Water Resources Control Board and the California Department of Fish and Wildlife, as well as information on regional and Humboldt County-specific ordinances. 

As water becomes more scarce in California, ensuring compliance with state water laws offers many important benefits. SRF is proud to continue making water law information accessible to landowners for the benefit of local communities and native salmon populations.
