Abstract
  • Among the suite of water resources management strategies, water banking can be a tool for water resource management in areas with high water demands or localized water scarcity. This research aims to further the understanding of water banking by conducting a review and analysis of relevant state legislation. This research identified legislation that explicitly mentions water banking and then assessed how states compare on the comprehensiveness of their water banking legislation.In this study over three hundred pieces of legislative documents referencing water banks and water banking were examined and coded to compare the nineteen states that use the Prior Appropriation Doctrine. Of the states examined, seven states had no mention of water banking in their legislation. The remaining twelve states were assessed and compared on a qualitative scale of comprehensiveness through twenty-eight categories. Washington, Arizona, and New Mexico rank consistently high in the individual categories, such as quantity and management, and the overall analysis determined that the state of Washington has the most comprehensive legislation regarding water banking. Conducting this research has enabled the identification of policy elements and objectives most often associated with water banking and has provided a platform for further discussions on how the progression of water banking legislation can compare to the growth of water banking practices and other water resource management strategies.
