Managing Western Water Conference–Boulder, CO

University of Colorado Law School

University of Colorado Law School will host the 2015 Martz Summer Conference on June 11-12, 2015. The title of the Conference is “Innovations in Managing Western Water: New Approaches for Balancing Environmental, Social, and Economic Outcomes.”

“Many aspects of western water allocation and management are the product of independent and uncoordinated actions, several occurring a century or more ago. However, in this modern era of water scarcity, it is increasingly acknowledged that more coordinated and deliberate decision-making is necessary for effectively balancing environmental, social, and economic objectives. In recent years, a variety of forums, processes, and tools have emerged to better manage the connections between regions, sectors, and publics linked by shared water systems.  In this event, we explore the cutting edge efforts, the latest points of contention, and the opportunities for further progress.”
