Mary Reece, Program Development Manager of the US Bureau of Reclamation puts a face on partnerships with her 2017 case study. The “arranged marriage” between the Department of the Interior and the New Mexico Interstate Stream Commission demonstrates the power of staying engaged, through conflict and court cases, and renewing our commitment to "work it out" for the benefit of America's people and our public lands.
