Cataloging calls for “water markets”

It’s trendy now to propose water transfers between regions and agriculture to urban uses as the primary solution to California’s drought. While this may not be the “silver bullet” that the proponents believe, I’m starting to catalog the articles I find making these proposals. I’ll hold my commentary until later.

Here’s a San Diego Union-Tribune piece from Erik Telford at the Franklin Institute.

Here’s a Sacramento Bee article from Christopher Thornberg at Beacon Economics.

Here’s another Bee article by Jay Lund, Ellen Hanak and Buzz Thompson at PPIC. And another post by Jay Lund on the many uses.

More from the Bee by Lawrence J. McQuillan and Aaron L. White at the Independent Institute.

A proposal by EDF with five recommendations.

Let me know about others.
