Abstract: Political and economic considerations affect water development and irrigation expansion. Emphasis on economic growth has led to over-investment in agricultural irrigation, while public concerns about water scarcity and the environment lead to conservation. The California case examined here suggests that successful adoption of water conservation strategies requires public-private collaboration.
