Eminent Domain Policy Principles

The water community’s vision for how California can meet its future water needs is set forth in ACWA’s NO TIME TO WASTE: A Blueprint for California Water. Within a portfolio of sound water management techniques, ACWA’s Blueprint calls for significant new investment in water infrastructure. Water infrastructure investment is imperative at statewide, regional and local levels. Water infrastructure development programs often require the acquisition of private property and rights of way across private property. Unfortunately, the acquisitions cannot always be accomplished through voluntary, consensual purchases and it becomes necessary to acquire the property interests through eminent domain.
