Peter Nichols to present at the University of Denver Water Law Review Symposium

Peter Nichols, Of Counsel with BHGR, will present at the University of Denver Water Law Review Symposium “Addressing Supply and Demand Imbalances in the Colorado River Basin” on April 12, 2013.

Mr. Nichols’ topic is "The future of transfer from agricultural to municipal use: Changing Colorado legislation to allow for more flexible water leases."
The Symposium will focus on the groundbreaking Colorado River Basin Supply and Demand Study. It will be held at the University of Denver Sturm College of Law in the Ricketson Law Building.

The study, jointly funded and prepared by the United States Bureau of Reclamation and the seven Colorado River Basin states, projects startling supply and demand imbalances throughout the basin and its adjacent areas over the next 50 years. Water law and policy experts from around the nation will discuss implications of the study, as well as a broad range of adaptation strategies as the West continues to rapidly grow into the 21st century.
The Symposium will be keynoted by Anne Castle, Assistant Secretary of the Interior for Water and Science. Contact Jonathan King at jking13@law.du.edu.
