Nez Perce Water Agreement

Special | 58m 47s

A look at the Nez Perce Water Agreement involving treaty water rights and flow requirements and the history and elements of the dispute, which threatens to pit longtime holders of groundwater rights (e.g., irrigators) against holders of historic spring water rights (e.g., trout farmers). This is the largest water rights agreement in Idaho history.
