A collection of legal and otherwise relevant materials related to western water adjudications and other complex water litigation.
The project has focused on case management, alternative dispute resolution, and the sharing of practical experience by a diverse
group of judges, masters and referees who have participated in Dividing the Waters activities.
The 'Dividing the Waters Collection' is a collaboration of a network of judges, special masters and referees who preside over
western water adjudications and other complex water litigation. The central purpose of the Dividing the Waters project has
been to improve the management and outcome of this complex water-related litigation affecting western people and the region's
environment. State trial judges have been most directly served by this project although state appellate judges, federal trial
and appellate judges, and U.S. Supreme Court special masters are also involved in project activities.
