Water Rights and Assessments
(Proposals Involving Antarctic Icebergs for the Colorado River Basin, California, Mexico and Other Arid Lands)
The use of Antarctic icebergs as a fresh water resource appears particularly attractive for augmenting the world food production to alleviate the stress of the forthcoming world population increase. However, viable plans for the timely use of iceberg resources must be made compatible with established water use practices. The adoption of the proposed water rights and assessment principles providing unrestricted, nondiscriminatory access to water anywhere would greatly facilitate the initiation and evolution of the use of water for greatest world-wide economic benefit.
