drought in the eastern United States proved that water
supply is a national issue, not one confined to the arid
West. The University of Virginia School of Law will host
a half-day conference on watershed management March 20
that will look at dealing with water supply and quality
issues through integrated strategies. Supported by the
John M. Olin Program in Law & Economics,
the conference will consider pricing schemes and other
market strategies, dispute resolution techniques and
new organizational forms for watershed management.
