Arizona Water Law (Feller;McGinnis)   SL# 21706 LAW-691 013

The reading assignment for the first three seminar meetings is posted on Blackboard and is reproduced below. The version on Blackboard is better-formatted and therefore easier to read. Arizona Water Law Seminar Spring 2013 Professors Feller and McGinnis Reading Assignment for First Three Classes: January 15, January 22, and January 29 There is no casebook for this seminar. Reading materials will be posted on Blackboard and/or distributed by e-mail. However, we highly recommend that students without a previous course in water law obtain a copy of WATER LAW IN A NUTSHELL by David Getches. Students who have taken a previous course in water law may also find this book useful as a refresher and reference. Preliminary Reading We recommend that, before the first class, students without a previous course in water law read the following parts of Water Law in a Nutshell by David Getches: Chapter One, Part II: Legal Systems for Water Allocations Chapter Three (Prior Appropriation), Part I: General Description Part IV: Elements of Appropriation Part V: Priority: Linchpin of the Appropriative Right Since we will be focusing on Arizona, you may skip the paragraphs that discuss specifics of Colorado’s unique system of water law. Students with a previous course in water law may also find this material helpful as a review of basic principles. Tuesday, January 15 [For those without a previous course in water law, we recommend that you read the following parts of Water Law in a Nutshell by David Getches: Chapter Three (Prior Appropriation), Part VII (Extent of the Appropriative Right): Section A (Measure of the Right: Beneficial Use) Section B (Beneficial Use as a Limit) Students with a previous course in water law may also find this material helpful.] For the first seminar meeting, read the following two documents, which are posted on Blackboard: 1. Joseph Feller, A Very Brief Overview of Water Supply and Use in Arizona (December, 2011) Given the information in this overview, would you say that there is currently a water shortage or crisis in Arizona in the short term? In the long term? If so, what should be done to address the problem in the short term? In the long term? 2. Hurley v. Abbott (Ariz. Territorial Court, 3d. Dist., 1910) (“The Kent Decree”) We will read and discuss the Kent Decree, which is named after the Territorial judge who wrote it, for three reasons: i. It is a good introduction to the doctrine of prior appropriation as applied in Arizona. ii. It is the legal basis for most existing surface water rights in the Phoenix metropolitan area. Many of these rights have been transferred to the cities of Phoenix and Tempe and are used by these cities to supply their municipal water systems. iii. It raises several legal issues that are still relevant today. The following are some notes and questions to think about as you read the Kent Decree: • On pages 3- 4 of the decree, the court discusses an earlier lawsuit brought by M. Wormser in 1887 and resulting in a decision issued by Judge Kibbey in 1892. According to the court, the parties to that lawsuit had proceeded on a misunderstanding of the doctrine of prior appropriation. What was the nature of that misunderstanding? • Along the same line, in 1935 the Arizona Supreme Court wrote in Tattersfield v. Putnam: “Every right to the use of water for irrigation must be appurtenant to a particular piece of land and the ownership of diversion works and ditches does not entitle such owner to a ‘floating’ water right, for the beneficial use is the basis, measure and limit to the use of water.” 45 Ariz. 156, 162 (1935) • When the U.S. Bureau of Reclamation builds dams and canals to supply water to landowners, it typically obtains rights to that water in its own name. However, in the context of one of the Bureau’s first major undertakings, the Newlands Project on the Truckee and Carson Rivers in Nevada, the U.S. Supreme Court has held that “the Government's ‘ownership’ of the water rights was at most nominal; the beneficial interest in the rights confirmed to the Government resided in the owners of the land within the Project to which these water rights became appurtenant upon the application of Project water to the land.” Nevada v. United States, 463 U.S. 100, 126 (1983). The Court concluded that the government was not free to reallocate Project water from the landowners to other purposes. Nonetheless, where a landowner depends on a government project, rather than her own diversion ditch, to deliver water to which she has a right, the right may be useless without a contract with the government that obligates the government to deliver the water. Therefore, as a practical matter, such contracts may determine the terms and conditions under which landowners receive and use water. See, e.g., Klamath Water Users Protective Ass'n v. Patterson, 191 F.3d 1115 (9th Cir. 1999), Madera Irr. Dist. v. Hancock, 985 F.2d 1397 (9th Cir. 1993). • As noted on page 5 of the opinion, in 1903 the Bureau of Reclamation began the construction of Roosevelt Dam, the largest element of the Salt River Project (SRP), on the Salt River about 75 miles east of Phoenix. The Bureau also built Granite Reef Diversion Dam about 50 miles downstream of Roosevelt Dam. The canals that serve the Salt River Valley, including Tempe and Phoenix, begin at Granite Reef. No water is diverted at Roosevelt Dam. What, then, is the purpose of Roosevelt Dam? • As the Kent Decree determined, appropriative rights to hundreds of thousands of acre-feet of water from the Salt River had already been established before Roosevelt Dam was built. What constraint do these rights place on the operation of the dam? What water may be stored in Roosevelt Lake behind the dam? • As also noted on page 5 of the opinion, after P.T. Hurley instituted the lawsuit in1905, the U.S. government intervened and impleaded all landowners in the Salt River Valley, 4,800 in all. Why did the government find it necessary to involve all landowners in the lawsuit? (For a similar reason, Congress declined to authorize construction of the Central Arizona Project to divert Colorado River to southern Arizona until after the competing claims of Arizona and California to the river’s water were resolved in Arizona v. California, 373 U.S. 546 (1963)). • Must the dam’s operators always release enough water to satisfy all pre-dam water rights? If you look at SRP’s Daily Water Report, http://www.srpwater.com/dwr/ , you will see that, under the heading “Runoff,” SRP reports the amount of water flowing into its reservoirs each day. Why is it essential to constantly measure the amount of water flowing into the reservoirs? • The court declares, on page 6 of the opinion, that “[t]he actual amount of water that may be appropriated for irrigation, therefore, is the amount that the landowner can and does actually use in the necessary and economical irrigation of his land for cultivation.” (Emphasis added.) However, in the rest of the opinion, the court does not rely on measurements of the amount of water that had actually been applied to each claimant’s land. How, instead, does the court determine the amount of each claimant’s appropriative right? Is this method an adequate substitute for actual measurements? • In order to make its determinations, the court must employ an assumption regarding the “duty of water.” The duty of water means the amount of water that it takes to irrigate an acre of cropland. The court, somewhat arbitrarily, assumes a duty of water of 48 “miner’s inches” per quarter-section of land. • Water rights are about quantity. We recommend that you become familiar with the quantities involved by running through an exercise in multiplication and division: o A miner’s inch is an antiquated unit of water flow equal to the amount of water that will flow through a one-square-inch hole under a certain pressure. Near the end of the opinion, on page 15, the court states that a miner’s inch is equal to 1/40 of one cubic foot per second, or 0.025 cfs. How many cfs is 48 miner’s inches. o A section of land is one square mile, or 640 acres. How many acres is a quarter-section? o How many cfs per acre is 48 miner’s inches per quarter section? o The duty of water is often expressed in acre-feet of water per acre of land per year. A flow of one cubic foot per second (cfs) is equal to about 720 acre-feet per year. How many acre-feet per acre is 48 miner’s inches per quarter section? o “Acre-feet per acre,” though a common expression, is an odd unit of measurement in that “acre” appears both in the numerator and in the denominator: (acre x foot)/acre By the rules of algebra, the acres in the numerator and in the denominator cancel out: 1 (acre x foot)/acre = 1 foot What is the physical interpretation of a duty of water measured in feet? o On average, Phoenix gets about 7 inches of rainfall per year. How many acre-feet per acre is that? How does the duty of water assumed by the court in the Kent decree compare with the natural rainfall? o The court states, on page 7, that the total of all the water rights that it has adjudicated is approximately 58,000 miner’s inches. How many acre-feet per year is that? How does that compare with the average annual flow of the Salt River? • At the end of the top paragraph on page 8, the Court states that the presumed duty of water of 48 miner’s inches of water per quarter-section of land is “subject, however, to an increase or decrease of such standard upon application to the Court in this suit hereafter as conditions may require and develop after due trial of such amount as such standard.” Now, over one hundred years later, we know that modern farming techniques, as well as crops that require less water than alfalfa, allow farming with substantially less water. Should the water rights determined by the Kent Decree therefore be reduced? What about those rights that have long since been transferred to municipal use as farms were replaced by residential subdivisions? • On pages 8 and 9 the court increases the amount of the water rights in order to account for losses by evaporation and seepage from the canals. In so doing, the court takes into consideration, among other things, “the wasteful ordinary open earth channel[s] now in use.” (Page 8.) The amount of the increase is substantial, amounting to 36% for lands served by the Arizona Canal. But earlier, on page 6, the court stated the actual amount of water that may be appropriated for irrigation “is the amount that the landowner can and does actually use in the necessary and economical irrigation of his land for cultivation.” (Emphasis added.) Given this principle, is it correct to include in the water rights amounts of water that are lost by seepage and evaporation from “wasteful” canals? Now that many canals in the valley are lined with concrete, should these allowances be reconsidered?

Feller, The Adjudication that Ate Arizona Water Law, 49 ARIZ. L. REV. 405 (2007)

Obtain a copy of the 2013 Annotated Mini-Code/Mini-Rules Western Edition by ordering directly from the publisher AWHFY, Inc., online at www.awhfy.com or tel. (877) 412-2633. Order the Western Circuits edition that includes annotations of cases from the Fifth, Ninth and Tenth Circuits. By indicating you are a student you should be able to obtain it from the publisher for half of the ordinary $85.00 price; this is why the book has not been ordered for you through the book stores. Although the website currently says “backordered until 2013,” I have confirmed books will be available to be shipped by Friday Jan. 4, so order as soon as you can. Or obtain a used copy of the 2012 Edition from someone who took the Debtor/Creditor course last semester, or any version of the Bankruptcy Code published since 2006.

The casebook for the class is WARREN & WESTBROOK, THE LAW OF DEBTORS AND CREDITORS (6th Ed., Aspen Law & Business. 2008).

For the first class on Thursday, Jan. 10, please read Handout # 1 Northern Pacific Railway v. Boyd, 228 U.S. 482 (1912) (edited version available on the Blackboard for this course). Read it carefully and try to figure out what was really going on; I will expect class participation. For class, be prepared to answer:


- What do you think was the jurisdictional basis for the reorganization of the Northern Pacific Railroad to be heard in federal court?

- There was no general corporate reorganization statute until § 77B in 1934. How was the judicial reorganization of the Northern Pacific Railroad accomplished without a reorganization statute?

- Why reorganize instead of liquidate?

- Why do you think the bondholders agreed to dilute their interest in the reorganized debtor by allowing the participation of the old stockholders?

- What does Boyd require creditors to receive if stockholders participate?

- What was a major impediment to out of court workouts at the time of Boyd?

- What did the dissenters in Boyd find alarming about the majority’s decision?

- What does AWHFY stand for? Now that you read and understand Boyd, what is the answer?

International Law of Armed Conflict (Bodansky)   SL# 18054 LAW-791 021

Class 1 (January 10):

Introduction: Case Study on Bombing Iranian Nuclear Facilities

The first day of class will be an introduction to the international law of armed conflict, focusing on the UN Charter rules about when the use of force is permissible. We will use a case study to examine these issues, involving the possible bombing of Iranian nuclear facilities by Israel.

Read the materials for the first day of class, which are posted on Blackboard, and consider the following questions:

1. What role should law play in decisions about whether to attack the Iranian nuclear facilities? What role do you think it, in fact, plays in military decisionmaking?

2. If Israel launched an air strike against Iran that destroyed the Iranian nuclear facility at Natanz, would this be justified politically? Morally? Legally? How does your analysis differ, depending on which perspective you take?

3. If you were advising the Israeli government about the legality of bombing Iraq, how would you analyze the issues, based on the UN Charter?
