The California water atlas by California( )
7 editions published between 1979 and 2010 in English and held by 562 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Originally published in 1979, The California Water Atlas, a monument of 20th century cartographic publishing, has been scanned and put online for free public access by the David Rumsey Map Collection. Linda Vida, Director of The Water Resources Center Archives of the University of California asked David Rumsey and Cartography Associates to scan and make available to the public this extraordinary book. The copyright holder, the California Governor's Office of Planning and Research, agreed to allow free public access online. The book was digitized at very high resolution so the resulting images can be explored, revealing all the amazing detail in the many diagrams, maps, and illustrations that accompany the extensive text. The original work was a collaborative effort involving many individuals in and outside the government of then Governor Edmund G. (Jerry) Brown, Jr., including William L. Kahrl, Project Director and Editor; William A. Bowen, Cartography Team Director; Stewart Brand, Advisory Group Chairman; Marlyn L. Shelton, Research Team Director; David L. Fuller and Donald A. Ryan, Principal Cartographers; and many others who contributed to the project. ~ David Rumsey Map Collection blog, January 21, 2010

California's 1991 drought water bank : economic impacts in the selling regions by Lloyd S Dixon( Book )
3 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
In 1991, to mitigate the effects of a five-year drought, the California department of Water Resources bought water from farmers, landlords, and agencies in northern and central California and resold it to urban and agricultural areas. This study found that although operating costs and crop sales were substantially reduced for farmers who participated in the Bank, the Bank's economic impact was not large compared to the general agricultural economy of the region and to historic variations in the agricultural sector, and that participating farmers increased their farm investment. Recommendations for future banks include spreading purchases and rotating farmers to diffuse the bank's negative impacts, considering a lower water purchase price, using standard rules and contracts, and developing procedures to minimize divisiveness among landlords, tenants, and local businesses
