Abstract:     
One of the foremost examples of the emerging field of “sustainability law” is assured water supply requirements: state and local mandates that compel developers to prove they have sufficient water before new construction can go forward. Despite, however, the growing emergence of these laws, the question of whether assured supply laws actually — rather than only conceptually — advance sustainability remains. Juxtaposing five western states’ assured supply laws, this article takes an initial run at that question. It reaches three principal conclusions: first, that assured supply laws in fact promote sustainability; second, that the extent to which assured supply laws promote sustainability varies by state; and finally, that additional work is needed to concretely assess how effective assured supply laws are, both in general and in the sustainability context.
