Davis named to Water Resources Commission

July 01, 2013

Mark Davis, senior research fellow and director of Tulane Law School’s Institute on Water Resources Law and Policy, has added another duty: member of Louisiana’s Water Resources Commission.

Davis was one of two new members named to the commission by Gov. Bobby Jindal in late June.

The commission is charged with developing a statewide water resource management program; reviewing the contingency plan for responding to a ground water emergency; and approving/rejecting restrictions the commissioner of conservation orders to be placed on wells.

By statute, the 19-member commission includes the governor and eight other state officials, plus 10 gubernatorial appointees. One member must be a lawyer with expertise in water law, licensed to practice in Louisiana and nominated by a law school dean. Davis, a well-known voice on water law and policy, fit the criteria.
