Product Description

This thoroughly updated and revised edition of Legal Control of Water Resources contains expanded sections on water markets and the legal controversies swirling around them, as well as extensive new material on both the legislative regulation of groundwater and local groundwater management. The chapter on public rights has grown in light of increased concern for instream uses, new attention to matters such as hydropower relicensing, and the increase in importance of the Endangered Species Act and other stream restoration programs. The text also covers the most recent developments in federal reserved water rights.

Table of Contents includes:
Currents and Eddies: An Introduction to Water Resource Issues;
Riparianism and the Relationship of Water Rights to Land Ownership;
Prior Application;
The Evolution of Western Water Law;
Public Rights in Water: From Navigability to the Public Trust;
Water Institutions: Providers, Dam Builders, and Urban Empires;
Water as a Regional and Shared Resource;
Federal Water Rights and Programmatic Interests;
Water Quality.
