Ground Water Resources And International Law In The Middle East Process, Yoram Eckstein, Gabriel Eckstein 2018 Texas A&M University School of Law

Ground Water Resources And International Law In The Middle East Process, Yoram Eckstein, Gabriel Eckstein

Gabriel Eckstein

Next to issues of land, water resources are the major bone of contention in the peace negotiations between Israel and the Palestinian Arabs. The objective of negotiations is de facto setting the clock back to the eve of the Israel War of Independence, when the Jews accepted the 1947 UN resolution of partition, while the Arabs rejected it. The Arabs now accept the principle of territorial partition, but at the same time, they demand re-apportioning of resources, mainly of water. The Palestinians contend that the facts created on the ground unilaterally by Israel during the last 50 years, namely the ...


International Water Law, Groundwater Resources And The Danube Dam Case, Gabriel Eckstein, Yoram Eckstein 2018 Texas A&M University School of Law

International Water Law, Groundwater Resources And The Danube Dam Case, Gabriel Eckstein, Yoram Eckstein

Gabriel Eckstein

International water law is generally applied to disputes between states concerning surface bodies of water crossing international borders. Disputes and policy-making over transboundary ground water resources, however, have traditionally been determined on an ad hoc basis or based on regional custom. This disparate treatment stems primarily from the misunderstood nature of ground water and its relationship to surface water among government officials, policy-makers, jurists, and others. The result often has been the degradation of subsurface waters on both sides of political boundaries, and unwittingly, of numerous international surface bodies of water.

International concern over regional and global availability and quality ...


Cooperative Transboundary Mechanism, Alena Drieschova, Gabriel Eckstein 2018 Texas A&M University School of Law

Cooperative Transboundary Mechanism, Alena Drieschova, Gabriel Eckstein

Gabriel Eckstein

Management of transboundary waters in increasingly becoming more challenging, and climate change is likely to exacerbate these pressures. Not least because climate change is a global issue, adaptation will require an international response. This book aims to identify issues, both theoretical and practical, that States face in establishing cooperative transboundary mechanisms to effectively adapt water management to climate change. Furthermore, it will address complex legal hurdles that existing transboundary water institutions face when attempting to adapt existing mechanisms to function in a changing climate. It will also provide an overview of best practices in transboundary adaptive water governance thus far ...


Alternative Strategies For Managing Pharmaceutical And Personal Care Products In Water Resources, Gabriel Eckstein, George William Sherk 2018 Texas A&M University School of Law

Alternative Strategies For Managing Pharmaceutical And Personal Care Products In Water Resources, Gabriel Eckstein, George William Sherk

Gabriel Eckstein

In recent decades, concern has grown over the presence of pharmaceutical and personal care products (PPCPs) in water. This concern stems from the possibility that the presence of PPCPs in water supplies may pose a threat to both human and environmental health. Such threats may be both direct (e.g., exposure to endocrine disrupting compounds) and indirect (e.g., emergence of antibiotic resistant bacteria). The water treatment and wastewater treatment community has been especially concerned over PPCPs because of PPCPs ubiquitous nature and their ability to persist or only partially degrade in water and during wastewater treatment. Studies done over ...


Sections 7 And 15 Of The Canadian Charter Of Rights And Freedoms In The Context Of The Clean Water Crisis On Reserves: Opportunities And Challenges For First Nations Women, Madiha Vallani 2018 Western University

Sections 7 And 15 Of The Canadian Charter Of Rights And Freedoms In The Context Of The Clean Water Crisis On Reserves: Opportunities And Challenges For First Nations Women, Madiha Vallani

Master of Laws Research Papers Repository

This paper analyzes the water crisis on reserves through the lens of the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms. Specifically, this paper discusses certain issues, stemming from the water crisis, that some First Nations women experience, through the lens of the Charter’s section 15 right to equality, and section 7 right to life, liberty, and security of the person. In doing so, this paper aims to draw attention to the various ways that the water crisis uniquely impacts First Nations women due to their intersectional experiences under the protected grounds of sex, ethnic origin, race, and residency on reserve ...


When Is Groundwater Recharge A Beneficial Use Of Surface Water In California?, Kathleen Miller, Nell Green Nylen, Holly Doremus, Dave Owen, Andrew Fisher 2018 UC Berkeley School of Law

When Is Groundwater Recharge A Beneficial Use Of Surface Water In California?, Kathleen Miller, Nell Green Nylen, Holly Doremus, Dave Owen, Andrew Fisher

Nell Green Nylen

This issue brief considers whether groundwater recharge currently qualifies, or should qualify, as a beneficial use of surface water under a California water right. Currently, the lack of an explicit policy regarding recharge for non-extractive purposes — that is, for purposes such as combatting subsidence, raising regional groundwater levels, or supporting baseflow or ground-water dependent wetlands — creates uncertainty and confusion. To bring much needed clarity, the State Water Resources Control Board (the Board) should provide guidance explaining that recharge for non-extractive purposes can be a beneficial use of water. That guidance should explain the conditions under which recharge for nonextractive purposes ...

Florida Water Resource Development: A Call For Statewide Leadership, Charles R. Fletcher 2018 Florida State University College of Law

Florida Water Resource Development: A Call For Statewide Leadership, Charles R. Fletcher

Florida State University Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law

In his article, Florida Water Resource Development: A Call for Statewide Leadership, Charles R. Fletcher argues that Florida's current drought is due to a lack of statewide leadership in water resource planning and development. In discussing how Florida might improve its system, Mr. Fletcher surveys water resource development in North Carolina, New York, Texas, Kansas, Arizona, and California. These states offer alternatives to Florida's current system, and Mr. Fletcher identifies a number of proposals to effectively increase water resource development in Florida without the need for revision of Florida's administrative water use permitting system.

The Tri-State Compact: Falling Waters And Fading Opportunities, Dustin S. Stephenson 2018 Florida State University College of Law

The Tri-State Compact: Falling Waters And Fading Opportunities, Dustin S. Stephenson

Florida State University Journal of Land Use and Environmental Law

This timely article reviews the history and current status of the Apalachicola-Chattahoochee-Flint River Basin Compact, a tri-state water compact between Alabama, Florida, and Georgia. In the United States, water rights disputes are common in the arid West, where the supply of water is simply not plentiful when compared to the vast area of land; in fact, the western water rights doctrine dates back to the Gold Rush days of the mid 1800's. However, the Southeastern United States, with its humid climate, lush greenery, and plentiful rainfall, has always had an abundant water supply for its needs. Therefore, the region ...
