Water Wars: Texas v. Mexico


This article outlines the ongoing battle between the United States and Mexico related to the 1944 Treaty of the Utilization of Waters of the Colorado and Tijuana Rivers and of the Rio Grande. In the midst of the worst drought in Texas history, Mexico is withholding over 475,000 acre feet of water that the US claims to be owed under the treaty. This issue has now reached Congress as two bills have been introduced to enforce compliance with this treaty.
