Abstract

This project will be a comparative analysis of how multiple political jurisdictions manage groundwater supplies which extend across international boundaries. The study will examine binational strategies used to jointly manage aquifers between the United States and Canada; France and Switzerland; and Israel and the Palestinian Authority. These strategies will be utilized to suggest groundwater allocation and use measures that could be used to manage aquifers shared by the United States and Mexico. Later, representatives from the governments of Texas and Mexico will test how well the proposed management plans may work in simulation exercises.
