Doug Hallum will present "Making a long story longer: Interstate Compacts and Nebraska"
Governance is one of the most palpable ways that society experiences the results of scientific investigation, and the relevance it affords to the practice of hydrogeology is perhaps more well developed than many other sub-disciplines of earth science. This talk will outline the foundations and historical development of interstate compacts, and discuss the evolution of our understanding and application of them. The talk will conclude by presenting the basis for the Nebraska Governor’s recent commitment to fund the South Divide Canal project on the lower South Platte River, as outlined in the South Platte River Compact.
