Land and Water Law Review
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.
