    Since 1990, many eastern U.S. states have seen significant threats to water quantity for the first time in recorded history. At the same time, as spatial and temporal distribution of water is changing, demands for water for municipal use, agricultural use and energy production are increasing, further threatening the predictability and availability of the resource. This webinar will analyze recent state regulatory initiatives and court cases in MA, NY, PA and CT and suggest possible ways that state governments might overcome these hurdles. Click here for more information.

    John R. Fleck, Director of the University of New Mexico's Water Resources Program, argues in his new book that the 'water is for fighting over' mantra is actually a myth in the western U.S. When people have less water, they actually use less water. Using the over-allocated Colorado River as an example, Fleck shows that collaboration and cooperation among the seven basin states is far more prevalent than the media accounts would have us believe. He weaves a compelling tale, one that will have us more carefully scrutinize the 'Western water wars' headlines that are all too common today. Click here for more information.
