California Water, 3rd Edition

by Arthur L. Littleworth and Eric L. Garner

California Water, 3rd edition is a thoroughly updated edition of this concise guide to historical, legal and policy issues affecting water use in California. Covering new and emerging topics, including the Sustainable Groundwater Management Act, climate change and conservation, and features new maps of California’s major water supply systems and enhanced water quality content.

“Littleworth and Garner have achieved the impossible. They have untied California’s Gordian knot of water rights, laws, and policies and made them understandable for all. With California’s water management teetering on the edge of crisis, this timely book is critical for everyone working on and learning about the state’s challenges in an age of growing population, unsustainable water demand, and increasing climate change impacts.” - Mark Gold, Associate Vice Chancellor of Environment and Sustainability, UCLA
