Natural Resources Damage Assessments

Volume 1 Number 4 November/December 2002

Natural Resource Damage Assessments of injuries to surface and ground water resources is expanding throughout the United States. In the Southwest, where water is scarce, precious to humans and the environment, and in many areas is depleted faster than it is replenished, the value of water is steadily increasing. As a result, NRDA claims for injury to water resources can mean big business to resource trustees and big losses to those responsible. The largest NRDA claim is currently underway in Albuquerque, New Mexico, where the resource trustees have valued the allegedly injured water resource at $4 billion. In this issue our authors explore the basis for NRDAs and offer creative, lower-cost solutions. – Steven I. Michelson, R.G., MECA
