Abstract:     
This paper examines the increasing importance of groundwater, the inadequacy of many states' laws and management policies, the federal government's legal authority to regulate or otherwise influence groundwater management and use, and the various ways the federal government influences and can influence groundwater management. The paper suggests ways the federal government should exercise that influence to promote wiser and better use of water.
