Modern Water Law provides a comprehensive text to study the range of legal issues and doctrines that affect water resources. This is a national book that uses many recent cases, bringing a fresh perspective to the field. The authors begin with private water use rights, including common law doctrines for riparian reasonable use and prior appropriation, as well as groundwater rights and the statutory schemes for administering water use rights. The book explores the range of public rights in water, including navigation, the public trust doctrine, federal reserved rights, and interstate water management. The book also introduces modern challenges and environmental protection goals, focusing on the energy-water nexus, water pollution, and endangered species conflicts. The final chapters combine these concepts in the context of complex watershed restoration challenges and water rights takings litigation.

A Vital Explanation of Water Law and Policy Because demand for and access to quality water far exceeds the current supply, it is increasingly critical to understand the state and federal laws and policies that govern water rights. From farming, fishing, and biology to manufacturing, mine operation, and public water supply, water regulation affects all strata of society. Determining U.S. Water Rights: Different Systems for Different Needs United States Water Law: An Introduction is a concise overview of law and policy related to U.S. water rights and regulation of water quantity and quality. This wide-ranging book reviews the two major systems used to determine rights in the western and eastern states. It explores these different systems, which are based on the divergent factors affecting the two regions – the immense amount of government-owned property and arid conditions in the west, and ownership of riparian land in the east. The author also covers western states that adhere to the "hybrid" system, which recognizes early riparian rights predating adoption of later appropriation systems, and he explains that most states recognize at least some riparian rights to the use of surface water. Special sections detail regulatory considerations such as Native American rights, environmental regulation, nuisance and tort law, and social theory. Tools to Aid Further Research To elucidate basic principles and differences in water law, this book contains Internet links to state water codes and contact information for regulatory agencies that handle applications. It presents key federal case law and statutes and other features to reinforce the material. For law practitioners and environmentalists to property/business owners acquiring or retaining water rights, this is the ideal primer on water law, with numerous tools to aid in further research.

The revised edition of Charles J. Meyers et al. Water Resource Management, 3rd ed., 1988. This edition places a greater emphasis on statutory systems than in prior editions, and the materials have been bolstered on public interest issues under state and federal laws. New cases have been added and significant new developments are captured by the addition of relevant textual material, notes of recent legislative activity, and scholarly commentary. The earlier editions' national orientation has been broadened, reflecting the fact that water issues are not limited to the West's perceived scarcity.

Each Assignment builds students' lawyering skills of analysis and problem solving, as they master the fundamental principles and doctrines of property law. In addition, many Assignments are ideal for instructor-designed simulations of other professional skills, such as client interviewing and counseling, negotiation, oral advocacy, drafting, and objective and persuasive writing. The Seventh Edition continues the book's emphasis on emerging issues of environmental sustainability. The Seventh Edition also provides a comprehensive introduction to Intellectual Property law and emphasizes the art of planning to avoid controversy, in contrast to the typical first year curricular focus on resolving existing controversies.
