Water law governs the right to use fresh water--both surface water and ground water--say Craig, Alder, and Hall, and though in most respects water law is a form of property law, it differs greatly from the rules governing ownership of land. The law speaks of usufructuary rights rather than ownership, and much of water law involves tension between private use rights and public ownership, management, and protection. Their topics include dealing with western water realities: the creation and adoption of prior appropriation, moving from common law to permits, state public trust doctrines, the intersection of water law and water pollution control law, and comprehensive water resources management and watershed planning.
