Modern Water Law provides a comprehensive text to study the range of legal issues and doctrines that affect water resources. This is a national book that uses many recent cases, bringing a fresh perspective to the field. The authors begin with private water use rights, including common law doctrines for riparian reasonable use and prior appropriation, as well as groundwater rights and the statutory schemes for administering water use rights. The book explores the range of public rights in water, including navigation, the public trust doctrine, federal reserved rights, and interstate water management. The book also introduces modern challenges and environmental protection goals, focusing on the energy-water nexus, water pollution, and endangered species conflicts. The final chapters combine these concepts in the context of complex watershed restoration challenges and water rights takings litigation.

Pearly mussels (Unionoidea) live in lakes, rivers, and streams around the world. These bivalves play important roles in freshwater ecosystems and were once both culturally and economically valuable as sources of food, pearls, and mother-of-pearl. Today, however, hundreds of species of these mussels are extinct or endangered. David L. Strayer provides a critical synthesis of the factors that control the distribution and abundance of pearly mussels. Using empirical analyses and models, he assesses the effects of dispersal, habitat quality, availability of fish hosts, adequate food, predators, and parasites. He also addresses conservation issues that apply to other inhabitants of fresh waters around the globe and other pressing issues in contemporary ecology.
"Water Brats" A Play for Teenagers in Two Acts Written by Kevin T. Baldwin 6 Females, 1 Male Synopsis: Six middle-school age girls from varying backgrounds get themselves trapped together in a large underground outfall connected to an abandoned treatment plant for the local sewer system. They need to find their way out in two hours before the next water discharge floods the tunnel. They have to travel from the diffuser tunnel to the outfall tunnel, or approximately two miles under sea level, in order to reach the other exit located near the bottom of the outfall shaft, one hundred feet under water. Along the way, they find a bag filled with money and the inscription "Millborough Savings Bank" along the side. But they can't tell any adult because, while down there, anyone with a cell phone finds that their devices aren't working sufficiently, thus they cannot call for help letting anyone know they're trapped. However one text message is received and comes through on a cell phone VERY clear: "I'm coming for you!"
