Summary
  • "This work broadly surveys the development of water politics and policy in the United States from the early nineteenth century to the present day. It is a story told through documents that is wrought with conflict as competing legal rulings and legislation at the state, federal, and international levels have created a morass that pits interest groups against each other. ... Through these documents, readers learn how our water politics evolved, see how previous generations address the challenges that faced them, and have present issues identified with various points of view so that they can consider possible solutions for the future."--Pg.ix
  • Covers legislation on: Aquifers -- Chemicals, oil, and other hazardous substances, Climate change -- Colorado River -- Ecosystems and wildlife management -- Flooding and flood control -- The Great Lakes -- Hydraulic fracturing / fracking -- International agreements, protocols, and treaties -- Native American rights -- State and federal appeals cases -- United States Supreme Court cases -- Water in the Western United States -- Water quality, treatment, and pollution
