“Water resource issues are inherently long-term,” said Marta L. Weismann, director of research for Stratecon Inc. and JOW. “It is necessary and compelling to look back and evaluate the lessons learned and the evolution of policy.”

In the inaugural installment of Then & Now, JOW looks at the issue of shortage on the Colorado River and finds the adage to be true: the more things change; the more they stay the same.
