This Comment reviews the constitutional basis of the doctrine of equitable apportionment and discusses the legal principles and public policy considerations underlying the equitable apportionment decisions of the United States Supreme Court. The Comment then examines the background and resolution of the North Platte River dispute that gave rise to the Court's equitable apportionment decree in Nebraska v. Wyoming. Finally, a discussion of the events preceding Nebraska's petition to reopen the North Platte River Decree and an analysis of issues in the new controversy based on previous equitable apportionment cases is presented.
