The impact of water law allocation and use of waters within the Western United States is currently recognized as one of the major constraints to adaptation by irrigated agriculture of more efficient operation practices. This project provides a background of the law and evaluation of the potentials through water law interpretations or changes to implementing improved water management technology. Specifically, this report provides a synthesis of water of the 17 western states, as well as providing a state-by-state account the water quantity laws, paying particular attention to features in the laws and their administration that direct the manner of use and provide incentives or disincentives to more efficient use.
Includes bibliographical references (pages 90-94).
