Water Rights

Water in Hawaii is a closely protected resource, with complex regulatory and approval processes for developers looking to tap in to water sources.

Carlsmith Ball advises developers and prospective buyers of resorts, golf courses and major real estate projects on water rights entitlements and the availability of water to their projects. The firm also represents clients that own and operate private water companies regulated by the Public Utilities Commission in the approval of water systems, contract negotiation and the design and construction of water facilities.
