Arkansas River Compact of 1949

The Arkansas River Compact of 1949 settles existing disputes and removes causes of future controversy between the states of Colorado and Kansas, and between citizens of one and citizens of the other states, concerning the waters of the Arkansas river and their control, conservation and utilization for irrigation and other beneficial purposes. The compact also equitably divides and apportions between the states of Colorado and Kansas the waters of the Arkansas river and their utilization as well as the benefits arising from the construction, operation and maintenance by the United States of John Martin Reservoir Project for water conservation purposes.
