Management of water uses from interstate river basins involves a complexity of competing needs, differing priorities among upstream and downstream users, and different jurisdictional authorities. Resolution of water-related issues in a multi-state environment necessitates: (1) a mutual understanding of the data related to the basins, including both current and projected water supply, uses, and needs; (2) a structure and process for cooperative management and development of regional water resources; and (3) a conflict resolution plan for addressing and resolving water-related disputes.
