Since 1990, many eastern U.S states have seen significant threats to water quantity for the first time in recorded history. At the same time as spatial and temporal distribution of water is changing, demands for water for municipal use, agricultural use and energy production are increasing, further threatening the predictability and availability of the resource. This webinar analyzed recent state regulatory initiatives and court cases in Massachusetts, New York, Pennsylvania, and Connecticut to illustrate some of hurdles water law reform faces in meeting the challenge of climate change and the accompanying evolution of water distribution, and suggest possible ways that state governments might overcome these hurdles.
