This thoroughly updated and revised edition 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. Also covers the most recent developments in federal reserved water rights.
