A Proposed Revision Of Kentucky's Water Rights Legislation, Richard Ausness Oct 1978

A Proposed Revision Of Kentucky's Water Rights Legislation, Richard Ausness

KWRRI Research Reports

Kentucky's present system of water law consists of a statutory water withdrawal permit system superimposed upon a body of common-law water rights doctrine. The rights of water users are often uncertain under this system, particularly in periods of water shortage. The proposed revision of Kentucky's existing water rights legislation, would greatly reduce the significance of common-law water rights and would remedy some of the weaknesses in the present statute.

Part 1 of the proposed statute establishes an administrative structure; Part 2 deals with water withdrawal permits; Part 3 retains the present statute's provisions on the regulation of ...

Our Salty Rivers: Legal And Institutional Approaches To Salinity Management, Ralph W. Johnson

The salinity problem in United States rivers becomes worse each year, and no water law system to date has been developed that adequately addresses salinity management. Professor Johnson discusses the salinity problem and its scope as well as remedial and preventative measures that have been taken in the past. He suggests combating the salinity problem by use of systems analysis, i.e., a comprehensive basinwide or regional management plan that analyzes the entire hydrological, economic, political, and agricultural system.


Commonwealth V. Barnes & Tucker Co.--The Burden Of Treating Acid Mine Drainage, Michael E. Winck Jun 1978

Commonwealth V. Barnes & Tucker Co.--The Burden Of Treating Acid Mine Drainage, Michael E. Winck

West Virginia Law Review

On February 28, 1977, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania decided the case of Commonwealth v. Barnes & Tucker Co. That decision resolved a lengthy controversy over the issue of responsibility for the abatement of acid mine drainage emanating from an inactive deep coal mine which was owned and once operated by Barnes and Tucker Co.
