John M. Olin Conference on Watershed Management
March 20, 2003
Last year's 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.
