Appendix B

Acknowledgments of Case Study Participants

The committee members wish to extend their sincere appreciation to all the people who shared their expertise and experience with us during the preparation of this report. In particular, we would like to thank Joseph Sax, a leading water law scholar from the University of California, Berkeley, for his important insights and contributions. We also would like to acknowledge the representatives who met informally with us as we gathered information for the case studies—people representing agricultural interests, water management agencies, urban planners, environmental groups, Indian tribes, and other interests as appropriate. Our discussions were frank and informative. In the end, however, the committee claims sole responsibility for the content and recommendations of this report.
