Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water


The development, and an overview, of processes used to address water sharing between the United States and Canada are addressed. Transboundary waters between the two countries include four of the five largest rivers in North America and three of the six largest lakes in the world. This paper concludes that water sharing occurs under the influence of strong and enlightened self-interest by equal parties to agreed upon process options.
