This new edition begins by covering the long-established systems of private water rights (the appropriation doctrine and the riparian doctrine for surface waters and the various doctrines for groundwaters). Then it covers public rights, water quality regulation, and other environmental regulation primarily from the perspective of how these affect private water rights. The book also addresses interstate allocation and federal-state relations. There is one new principal case and many new notes. The notes in all the chapters have been updated.
