Arkansas River


Kansas v. Colorado refers to a number of cases heard by the Supreme Court of the United States:

  • Kansas v. Colorado, 185 U.S. 125 (1902)
  • Kansas v. Colorado, 206 U.S. 46 (1907)
  • Colorado v. Kansas, 320 U.S. 383 (1943)
  • Kansas v. Colorado, 514 U.S. 673 (1995)
  • Kansas v. Colorado, 533 U.S. 1 (2001)
  • Kansas v. Colorado, 543 U.S. 86 (2004)

In 1994, the Special Master issued his first report, which recommended that the Court find Colorado in violation of the Compact in certain respects. Since then, the Master has issued three more reports and the states have filed various objections, most of which the Court has dismissed. Kansas has filed six exceptions to the reports recommendations, and the United States has intervened to ask the Court to overrule two of them.
