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.

This issue has now reached Congress as two bills have been introduced to enforce compliance with this treaty.
