This book examines the use, management, laws, and politics of groundwater in the West. Public servants in federal, state, and local water resource and natural resource agencies, legislators and their assistants at all levels of government, as well as academicians in a variety of fields, are all among the actors with an interest in groundwater use and management. This book is designed for these groundwater decision-making participants as well as for students of these subjects and those in the general public (whose numbers are growing) who become or find themselves involved in groundwater politics and policy making. The introductory chapter provides an overview of important groundwater management and policy issues that regularly present themselves. Each of the subsequent chapters is devoted to one of the 19 states. -after Author
