The Conservation Leadership Council has released three white papers about water quality and water rights. "Prior Appropriation and Water Quality" explores how water quality can impact the approach to water rights, using the Tongue River in southeastern Montana as a test case. "Markets and Private Property Rights to Groundwater" looks at how a market for groundwater rights can be formed and operated, using California's Mojave Basin Area as a test case. "Competitive Procurement Programs Can Help Heal the Chesapeake Bay" analyzes how private sector engagement can accelerate and reduce costs of compliance with EPA regulatory standards for Chesapeake Bay total maximum daily load.
