For 1240 miles the Rio Grande forms the boundary between the United States and Mexico. Since 1948 when the boundary was established by treaty between the two countries, the problems of channel re-alignment, flood control, irrigation and power development have been dealt with successfully and amicably by a joint commission presently known as the International Boundary and Water Commission, United States and Mexico. The history and accomplishments of the commission are detailed by the authors who are principal engineers of the Mexican and United States sections, respectively, of this body.
