About the Hydrowonk Blog

The Hydrowonk Blog is a forum to exchange information and perspectives on water markets, resource management and policy, including best management practices and analytic methods.  All dimensions (economic, finance, scientific, engineering, political, legal, and media) and from all perspectives (water user, water right owner, environmental, non-governmental, governmental, tribal, private sector, capital markets and media) of any issue are on the table.  With the growing interaction between the United States and Mexico, look for attention to bi-national matters.

The Hydrowonk Blog aspires to become an open intellectual marketplace for the water industry where individuals share and build their intellectual capital.   Rodney T. Smith, Ph.D. founding co-editor of Water Strategist is the executive blogger.  The Hydrowonk Blog is larger than an individual—a virtual community of those interested in exchanging and building intellectual capital.  Featured and guest bloggers also share their perspectives.
