Abstract: (Abstract Only) The International Boundary and Water Commission, United States and Mexico, is responsible for applying the boundary and water treaties between the United States and Mexico. The agency designs, operates, and maintains a number of water projects of interest to the World Water & Environmental Resources Congress such as international dams/reservoirs, flood control projects, and wastewater treatment plants. The United States Section of the International Boundary and Water Commission will participate in the poster session with a general exhibit about the agency focusing on the boundary and water treaties, the Commission's areas of responsibility, and current projects. The exhibit will familiarize Congress participants with the Commission and the special challenges of managing water projects that are binational in nature.
