California Water II addresses the question, Do we have enough water? and discusses key developments in the law: the implementation of the historic Bay-Delta Accord, the crisis in the Delta, settlement of critical issues on the Colorado River, global warming, and the emergence of new water supplies such as water transfers, conservation, recycling, and the conjunctive use of groundwater.
