The law of water rights embraces several diametrically opposing doctrines and numerous modifications and combinations of these doctrines. Different rules and hypotheses have been established for distinct classes and different geographic occurrences of water in an effort to isolate and scale down conflicts and to allow for flexibility in dealing with different environments and changing societal needs and attitudes. In this chapter we will consider the various water regimes and some of the fundamental legal doctrines that pertain to water rights.
