WATER RIGHTS MEDIATION

The Center serves as the legal mediator in an effort to develop an agreed upon management regime in the Nooksack River Basin. Such and agreement would safeguard tribal treaty-based claims to water for salmon habitat while addressing the need for out-of-stream uses by tribes and non-tribal parties. This unique effort is taking place outside of the litigation context and serves as a pilot project for innovative dispute resolution in the natural resources arena
