Abstract
  • This capstone project is presented for completion of Oregon State University’s (OSU) Master of Natural Resources Program. This project is an expansion of the author’s research completed as part of the Water Conflict Management and Transformation Certificate and as part of the overall Master of Natural Resources Program. Located on the border of Texas and Louisiana, Toledo Bend is a 185,000 acre hydropower reservoir. Although Toledo Bend was first conceived to provide water for future needs, until now very little of the water is being utilized by municipalities or industry. West Texas is currently looking at the near future and the need for more water and has its eye on Toledo Bend to provide that water. At this time the ecological, economic, social and ethical considerations of water sales must be examined as well as the complex issue of putting a dollar value on water. This capstone project has been prepared to consider sustainability issues of a water sale proposal. It includes a history of the Toledo Bend Project, an existing water sale proposal, principles that should guide a water sale, guidelines for gaining cooperation among stakeholders and finally some recommendations for consideration.
