State and national boundaries are traversed by natural surface water and ground water systems, but the flow of water in such systems is not influenced by these boundaries. Considerable history and experience have developed in the United States over the allocation and management of water in interstate and international streams. However, similar agreements between states or with other countries concerning the development and use of ground water flowing under a state or international line are practically non-existent. This study was designed to be a first look at the physical and legal problems involved with interstate and international aquifers. Approximately 200 interstate and international aquifer situations were identified by state agency and university personnel responding to a questionnaire. A case study was conducted on the Ogallala formation lying across the Colorado-Kansas state line. (WRSIC abstract)
