Water Allocation Issues Studied
League members Eve Anderson, Martha Black, Tara Hands, and Carol Kleppin attended the annual People's Water Conference on Jan. 14. Black, organizer of the first annual conference, also served as a member of the conference planning committee.
Titled "Water for the 21st Century - Water Allocations at a Crossroads: Hawaii Enters a New Era," the conference addressed the issue of how to make decisions for allocating water in regards to economic, environmental, cultural and infrastructure impacts. Specifically, it considered how the ecological perspective and multi-objective problem solving help us to allocate water for a sustainable future.
Discussion topics included:
No definitive conclusions were drawn from the discussions, and attendees noted the dearth of government representatives at the Saturday event.
