Matthew Draper to Present on U.S. and International Law of Transboundary Groundwater


Matthew Draper will speak at a National Science Foundation-sponsored workshop at the University of Alabama on the laws of transboundary groundwater allocation. Matthew will address both the U.S. law, as developed by the United States Supreme Court, as well as international law and principles applicable to interstate aquifers.


Matthew's presentation will be part of a larger workshop that aims to provide a scientific forum for researchers, academics, consultants, and industry professionals to discuss and develop novel ideas for solving groundwater and other water security problems.

The workshop is hosted by the Global Water Security Center and the Center for Water Quality Research at The University of Alabama from October 24th to 26th, 2022 at the Bryant Conference Center located on the campus of The University of Alabama, Tuscaloosa, AL. To sign up, click here.
