The seventh edition of this casebook for law students and practitioners retains its focus on Western water law of the US as an important model for water allocation in all regions. To complement the Western perspective, this edition incorporates recent developments in the law of riparian rights and regulated riparianism. After an intro chapter on the theme of scarcity, the next two chapters chart the principles for acquisition, transfer, and loss of water rights from common law origins to modern statutory regimes. Later chapters cover groundwater rights and management, public rights, and takings challenges to water management initiatives. Four final chapters carry through theme of the emerging trend toward ad hoc government-stakeholder processes to reach consensus-based solutions. Appendices provide a table of water equivalents and sources of water law and resources literature. This seventh edition is updated to reflect current law. ([umlaut] Ringgold, Inc., Portland, OR)
