Abstract:

The purpose of this appendix is to summarize the legal and policy framework under which planning and development for the control, use, and management of water and related land resources have progressed and can proceed for the 10 States in whole or in part comprising the Missouri River Basin. The primary objective is to convey a general understanding of water laws, policies, and administration in each of the 10 States, the applicable laws and policies in the Federal Government, and to highlight their interrelations. Where the Missouri River Basin is affected thereby, brief attention is focused on legal arrangements for water import or export and for the use and accountability of international waters.
