Hydraulic Fracturing – Legal Developments

Latham & Watkins, the law firm, is hosting a webinar on legal developments in hydraulic fracturing, which while not solely a water topic, involves many water companies vying to clean up produced water for re-use.  In my experience, Latham’s webinars have been excellent.  Well worth the time.
