In this decade, catastrophic floods have devastated the Northeast and a prolonged drought has afflicted the South. We see deepening conflicts over interstate water allocations and limited reservoir storage, while energy needs place new demands on the East’s freshwater resources. Although more sophisticated tools are available for measuring and predicting hydrologic conditions, interpreting and assigning weight to the analytical results is challenging and more contentious than ever. With climate change and hydrologic disruption adding layers of complexity to all aspects of water resources management, how is water law guiding crucial decisions and how is it evolving? Join your colleagues and some of the nation’s leading experts in an exploration of how the legal landscape is adapting to a changing water environment in the East.
