About Us: THE WATER REPORT Editors

Testimonial for The Water Report:

"I find The Water Report to be an excellent way to keep up on the many developments regarding water around the West. In addition to updates on many matters of interest to folks who follow water policy and water law, there are a number of in-depth analyses of important water questions. I recommend The Water Report without any hesitation."
