NWSA adopts its first policy statements

The NWSA Policy Committee, chaired by Andrew Morris, drafted Policy Statements on two fundamental water supply issues: #1) recognizing States’ authority to grant water rights and #2) affirming that the Corps role is to provide storage space and not water.


Andrew presented the Policy Statements at the NWSA Annual Meeting on August 23, 2022, for discussion. Subsequent to the Annual Meeting, the NWSA Board of Directors adopted Policy Statements #1 and #2, with a minor amendment on September 23, 2022. The Policy Statements can be viewed and downloaded at https://www.nationalwatersupply.org/policy-principles.
