Summer Conference (20th: 1999: Boulder, Colo.)


The Strategies in Western Water Law and Policy conference examines the principal problem-solving strategies in western water law and policy: courts, coercion and collaboration. In addressing this broad range of strategies, the program focuses on national, west-wide and Colorado-specific issues.

Conference activities commenced with a free public program co-sponsored by the Center of the American West, examining the Western Water Policy Review Advisory Commission’s controversial report, Water in the West: Challenge for the Next Century. Secretary of the Interior Bruce Babbitt was the featured speaker at this forum.
