Steve Clyde, Vice President and Shareholder in the Salt Lake City office, was recently appointed to the Board of Advisors of Dividing the Waters. Since 1993, Dividing the Waters has provided a network for judicial officers to communicate with each other in a confidential and collegial setting about substantive and procedural case management issues that arise in complex water cases. Beginning as a discussion forum on western water right adjudications, the Program has evolved to address the most critical water issues facing judges today – climate change, water quality, endangered species and growing cities.
The Board will offer its members the opportunity to contribute in a way that leaves a long-lasting impact on how we resolve the inevitable conflicts that arise from growing demand and a limited supply of clean water, especially in light of climate change. The DTW’s Board of Advisors includes leaders in the water resources community who are dedicated to improving the management and outcomes of general stream adjudications and other complex water-related litigation.
