Water Wars and the Supreme Court

On June 13th, the U.S. Supreme Court handed the state of Oklahoma a major victory in the case of Tarrant Regional Water District v. Hermann. The case arose from the water district's unsuccessful attempt to purchase water from Oklahoma for the rapidly growing north Texas region. The water district filed suit to keep Oklahoma from preventing it from taking or diverting water inside Oklahoma. The Supreme Court found Texas could not come into Oklahoma and take water without Oklahoma's consent. Joining us today to discuss the case and the next battles over water are: Gary McManus, Associate State Climatologist with the Oklahoma Climatological Survey; from Tulsa, Marguerite Chapman, associate professor at the University of Tulsa College of Law; and, two journalists who have done extensive reporting on water issues in Oklahoma - M. Scott Carter of The Journal Record; and, Joe Wertz of State Impact Oklahoma.
