The People’s Compact

In this podcast you will hear from Catherine Vandemoer, Ph.D. the Chair of Montana Land and Water Alliance.  Topics of discussion include the objectives to the CSKT Water Compact, How it differs from other Tribal Water Compacts, and how it impacts not only the entire State of Montana but also the nation.  According to their website, The People’s Compact is a good faith effort to resolve a difficult problem with  the following objectives:

To STAY within the confines of federal reserved water rights law and the constitution

To PROVIDE a simple and final resolution for all of Montana, that benefits people, not governments.

To PROTECT the water rights of ALL MONTANANS and

To MEND fences with our friends and neighbors
