Abstract:     
This paper examines the growing importance of groundwater resources that cross state lines, and the body of federal law that can apply to interstate groundwater - a body of law developed almost entirely with respect to interstate surface water resources. It then examines past federal actions regarding interstate groundwater, and what role the federal government should play in the future, looking in particular at legislation Congress enacted in 2004 addressing a proposal by the Southern Nevada Water Authority to import groundwater from a basin that straddles the Utah-Nevada border.
