Water organizations in the western United States range from small, traditional acequia associations to large metropolitan water suppliers. What do these vastly different kinds of organizations have in common? All are feeling the pressures of change in the region - growing urban populations, environmental concerns, and calls for public participation.
This year's summer program, Water Organizations in a Changing West, examines how water organizations are adapting to these pressures for change. Speakers drawn from urban, agricultural, and community organizations share their experiences and describe innovative approaches to adapt to new demands.
