Water Law Basics: Overview of Surface Water Law in the United States

This lesson provides students in a Water Law, Natural Resources, or Advanced Property with a basic review of the subject of water law and the two main water law systems in the United States. The lesson assumes that students are familiar with the subject of water law in general, the two main systems of water law in the United States, and the basic rules for each. Students who are less familiar with these topics should be advised that information about the law is generally presented in the feedback to questions, not in the questions themselves.

The lesson consists of 15 questions and should take about 30-45 minutes to complete. Students may want to complete this lesson BEFORE attempting other water law lessons in the CALI library.
