About Us

History & Background

The environmental landscape of the western United States underwent profound changes in the latter part of the twentieth century. Environmental interests successfully sought to be heard as difficult policy and legal decisions were made over natural resources.

Disputes between states over the apportionment of interstate waters became increasingly pronounced. Environmental concerns, Native-American claims, and Endangered Species Act claims came to the forefront as the drought that afflicted much of the western United States brought challenges over scarce water resources into high relief.
