Discussion Forum on Water Politics (ACRL LPSS)
1:00 pm to 2:30 pm, US/Pacific
The LPSS Planning Committee is pleased to announce Mrs. Pat Mulroy, will be speaking at the LPSS Forum “Sharing” Water and Information: Water Policy in the Colorado River Basin at ALA on Saturday, June 28 from 1:00-2:30. Mrs. Mulroy has served as the General Manager of the Southern Nevada Water Authority (SNWA) from 1993 to her retirement in early 2014. SNWA is a not-for-profit cooperative agency established in 1991 which manages regional water sources and focuses on the water needs of Southern Nevada. The forum will focus on Mrs. Mulroy’s experience as General Manager of SNWA and how negotiating water policy for southern Nevada included many partners and players. As a public figure, Mrs. Mulroy has been a key player in providing water policy information to the public, which, with a resource as essential as water, draws much public scrutiny. Mrs. Mulroy was a driving force in the acquisition of water in southern Nevada, having negotiated several of interstate and international water agreements. The forum will provide a glimpse into water policy and the politics of sharing information and water between states, governments, and internationally.
