For more than a century water has been marketed in the form of leases, transfers, and purchases. The presentation will review cases based on behind-the-scenes engineering, negotiations, and decision making concerning the marketing of water. Examples include agreements instrumental in the 2005 Consolidated Colorado River Compact and to Colorado River Indian water rights in Nevada. As a consultant Dr. Allen provided technical support for these and other water agreements. The presentation will discuss the engineering and legal aspects of water agreements and leases.
