There is no single best way to address every water management challenge, so this book provides a close look at eight case studies of efforts to protect river systems throughout the USA and Canada. Each study considers the technical, political, regulatory, and legal steps that were taken to manage water in river systems under stress. A range of techniques and approaches are presented that can be used to balance competing demands for water in streams and lakes. This is a highly readable book filled with detailed information that is grounded in practical experience.
