  1. The Water Integrity Network (WIN, part of Transparency International) has a "User’s guide on assessing water governance" [pdf] that provides tools to conduct comprehensive assessments that can inform effective policy processes. This guide complements WIN's Water Management Toolbox

  2. Jay Lund and Ellen Hanak list 10 changes to water management that Californians NEED to implement if they want to live in a viable state. I'd have emphasized "pay to play" to smackdown the something-for-nothing crowd (although I'd prefer the State's "excess revenue" go to monitoring and managing groundwater instead of a silly bullet-full-of-nobody train)

  3. Good news: a water-peace deal in the Middle East. Bad news: using desalination to fill the Dead Sea instead of restoring flow to the Jordan River

  4. The lawsuit between the San Diego County Water Authority and Metropolitan Water District of Southern California -- the subject of my dissertation -- should be resolved by the end of the month. SDCWA may pay less for water, or the same, but the suit won't fix the bigger issue of allocating water. My solution would, but both sides need to free their minds

  5. China follows Soviet bootsteps: its largest freshwater lake is drying up
