Participants will discuss and analyze natural resource attributes, legal infrastructure, and current problems. Water law in relation to endangered species, water markets, energy, fisheries, interface between state and federal laws, international law, and unconstitutional regulatory takings of interest in water will be discussed. Finally, innovative models generated from resolution of water conflicts in the Columbia River system and the interface between water quality and quantity objectives will be included.
