A case for cooperation: How a binational agreement between the U.S. and Mexico can alleviate the rapid drawdown of the Mesilla and the Hueco Aquifer

William Lynch Vallee, University of Texas at El Paso

Abstract

This study examines ways to mitigate the depletion of the Hueco and the Mesilla aquifers in the Paso Del Norte region of the United States and Mexico through a binational legal agreement. By examining the history of cooperation and disagreement between the two nations and extrapolating from three case studies (The Nubian Sandstone Aquifer, The Mountain Aquifer, and The Guarani Aquifer) the research concludes that an agreement is indeed possible and lays out a plan to implement changes.^
