Harriet’s practice in Nebraska is primarily addressed to the relationship between ground water and surface water, including analysis and implementation of the Nebraska Ground Water Management and Protection Act. She was one of the attorneys in Spear T Ranch, Inc., v. Knaub et al. She also works with local Natural Resource Districts to deal with the impacts of the Endangered Species Act and the Republican River Compact.
Harriet is actively involved with addressing the impact of federal and state regulations on land and water use. In 2004, in a continuing effort to inform the general public regarding that regulatory environment, she formed the Wyoming Resource Alliance, working to increase public participation at both the State and Federal regulatory level. She hopes to expand the WRA concept into a regional and national resource.
Harriet is on the Advisory Board of the Rocky Mountain Land Use Institute, the Steering Committee for the Wyoming Business Alliance, and the Board of Litigation for the Mountain States Legal Foundation. Ms. Hageman was honored by Casper College as the Distinguished Alumni for 2011, and was inducted into the Wyoming Agriculture Hall of Fame in 2011.
