Marc Reisner, Sarah F. Bates


Overtapped Oasisanalyzes the West's water allocation system from top to bottom and offers dozens of revolutionary proposals for increased efficiency and policy reform. Marc Reisner and Sarah Bates argue that the West's underlying problem is not a shortage of water but the inefficient use of it, a problem caused by a bewildering tangle of federal subsidy programs, restrictive state water codes, anachronistic irrigation practices and -- perhaps most important -- resistance to reform.Marc Reisner is the author of 'Overtapped Oasis: Reform Or Revolution For Western Water', published 1990 under ISBN 9780933280762 and ISBN 0933280769.
