Isaac Castellano Publishes Book on Water Scarcity

Portrait of Isaac Castellano

Isaac Castellano, an assistant clinical professor in the School of Public Service and interim global studies program lead, recently published “Water Scarcity in the American West: Unauthorized Water Use and the New Future of Water Accountability,” with Palgrave Macmillan.

The project examines the role of unauthorized water use in the American West, and argues that status quo responses to unauthorized water use, or water theft, and the protection of water rights are largely inadequate, and that state and federal governmental agencies will face intense pressure to strengthen the protection of water rights in an era of climate change.
