Water Policy in Texas
Ronald C. Griffin, ed.
RFF Press | September 2010
RESEARCH TOPICS:
Description
As a water-scarce state with deep cultural attachments to private property rights, Texas has taken a unique evolutionary path with regard to water management. This new resource surveys past and current water policy challenges, telling a comprehensive story of water in Texas and identifying opportunities for improving future governance. Experts from broad disciplinary perspectives describe and analyze the various Texas water law and management agencies, the practices of water marketing in Texas, the unique cases of the Edwards and Ogallala aquifers, the extensive history of formalized water sharing with neighboring states and Mexico, and the opportunities for harnessing new technologies for meeting environmental and estuary goals. This multidimensional, interdisciplinary book will be a valuable resource for water managers worldwide, particularly those working within contexts of water scarcity.
