Description

During the past 15 years there has been increased pressure for a reallocation of water and a review of the system of water rights in the United States. In the Western States where water scarcity has long been a problem, population increases have expanded water requirements for urban and domestic uses. In the Eastern States contamination of lakes, rivers, and streams has brought about increased interest in pollution and water problems.
