The Journal of Water is an online, subscription-based journal reporting on the important, path-breaking and innovative developments in water resources in the Colorado River Basin, Texas and elsewhere in the Southwest.

Exclusive content accompanies reporting on all major developments, including commentaries and editorials on water issues collected from other venues.  We also provide information on water pricing in key areas of the western states, hydrologic conditions, and the fate of the water industry in capital markets.
