Overtapped Oasis: Reform or Revolution for Western Water

by

Overtapped Oasis: Reform or Revolution for Western Water Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Overtapped Oasis analyzes the West's water allocation system from top to bottom and offers dozens of revolutionary proposals for increased efficiency and policy reform. Marc Reisner and Sarah Bates argue that the West's underlying problem is not a shortage of water but the inefficient use of it, a problem caused by a bewildering tangle of federal subsidy programs, restrictive state water codes, anachronistic irrigation practices and - perhaps most important - resistance to reform.

Book News Annotation:

Guidelines for designing solutions that will sustain long-term growth without threatening the West's environment.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 181-184) and index.
