On April 19 and 20, 2005, the Andrus Center for Public Policy and the Idaho Statesman convened a conference, entitled Troubled Water, on the campus of Boise State University. Its purpose was to explore solutions for the Western water crisis. The conference was organized around the premise that in the 21st Century, water scarcity will reshape the West’s economy, growth, agriculture, environment, and recreation opportunities. In addition, access to clean water will be a global issue of huge importance.
