Abstract:

The State of Texas is developing a watermaster program which will enable the State to administer water right issues on a regional basis. A primary role of a watermaster operation is to provide for the lawful distribution of state water during periods of low-flow. Presented in this paper is a comprehensive overview of the historical events leading to this program and the efforts to implement it.
