Conclusion Introduction

The High Plains aquifer region is an agricultural area of modest precipitation, sparse population, relatively large farms and abundant but declining groundwater resources. Ironically, while the landforms, land use, demography and water resources are fairly uniform across the entire region, what varies among the states are the laws and the legal institutions regulating the water resources. The question is whether the ideas presented in this chapter involving American water law have relevance and applicability in other regions of the world.
