The author provides an up-to-date survey of water and drainage law in England and Wales, covering everything from sewerage to flood defenses and freshwater fisheries. This volume discusses water management and resource issues, reservoirs and dams, water supply, and the quality of drinking water. It examines applicable statutes in their common-law context and details how the law is applied to clarify uncertainties.
