Part of: Urban and Regional Conflict Resolution in Water Related Issues

Abstract: The Salt Lake Valley consists of a metropolitan area with a population of about one million. Wholesale domestic water supply is provided to this area by two main agencies, namely Salt Lake County Conservancy District (Conservancy District) and the Metropolitan Water District of Salt Lake City (Metro). As the service population has increased, so have conflicts over supply and delivery. The conflict resolution has taken several years of controversy, discussions and negotiations resulting in an agreement being developed. This agreement is known as 'The Conjunctive Management Plan' for Salt Lake County. The process and the plan will be discussed in this paper.
