If you rule on water issues, you need this book

The College and its affiliate Dividing the Waters have just published Adjudicating Groundwater: A Judge’s Guide to Understanding Groundwater and Modeling.

Adjudicating Groundwater

Judges can download the publication from the NJC by following this link.

Adjudicating Groundwater is designed to help judges understand the science of groundwater, which often comes into play when there is a dispute on water rights. In 2005, the U.S. Geological Survey estimated that groundwater provided about 23 percent of all fresh water.

This book provides a foundation in groundwater science for judges and other non-scientists who make decisions about how to optimize the use and management of aquifers.
