Water Trading

EFP principals have been involved as lead researchers in water research and development efforts being conducted in several regions of North America. This research is yielding broad reinforcement of the notion that pricing and market mechanisms can play an important role in fostering better water management, quality and conservation. Here are some of our past and current projects:

  • Canada: engaged by the Alberta Water Research Institute to examine the benefits of implementing a rules-based exchange for water resources in Alberta.
  • Chesapeake Bay: hired to help devise rules, procedures, and educational efforts that enhance use of a water quality trading system to assist in the clean-up goals for Chesapeake Bay.
  • New Mexico: studied the possibility of a water quantity “exchange” for the state of New Mexico.
  • Great Lakes: studied the viability of the use of market-based mechanisms on the use of Great Lakes water.
