Water Law is Focus of Western Attorneys General

The Conference of Western Attorneys General (CWAG) Chair, Colorado Attorney General John Suthers, hosted Western Attorneys General and distinguished legal experts from across the country April 29 and 30 to discuss major issues in water law at The Broadmoor hotel in Colorado Springs, Colo.

“Protecting the state’s water resources and safeguarding its rivers is among the most important jobs of Colorado’s Attorney General. Water is the lifeblood of Colorado and the West,” General Suthers said. It is a topic he chose to focus on during his tenure as CWAG chair. General Suthers’ peers elected him CWAG chair at their August meeting last year. He previously served as the organization’s vice chairman.

Conference speakers included Colorado Supreme Court Justice Gregory J. Hobbs, U.S. Department of Agriculture Undersecretary Harris Sherman, Alaska Attorney General Daniel Sullivan and U.S. Bureau of Reclamation Deputy Commissioner Bill McDonald as well as a variety of experts on water reuse and treatment. The conference featured discussions on a wide array of topics, including the Colorado River Compact, the Clean Water Act, water reuse, desalination and transbasin diversions.
