Abstract: Arkansas has historically enjoyed plentiful water and has typically resolved water conflicts with case by case application of common law. As agricultural, industrial and domestic water uses increase, and inevitable conflicts with ecological and esthetic values occur, the need for more comprehensive and responsive laws has become apparent. As a result, the state of Arkansas is in the process of implementing statutory and regulatory ground water law.
