Water is the most precious natural resource on earth and is the source of many conflicts between the private and public sectors. Disputes can also arise between private parties over water entitlements, particularly the use of water from streams, lakes, and ponds (surface use), and the use of water underground (subsurface use like wells). All water in California is owned collectively by the people. The State itself is the titleholder, but this title is held in trust for the benefit of the citizens of California. These citizens are entitled to the reasonable use of water for myriad needs, including agricultural and domestic use. Within the last several decades, tension has increased between the needs of agricultural producers and the needs of domestic users. Also, tensions have increased between the needs of domestic and agricultural users.
