It is interesting to recall that in Great Britain somewhat similar protection was provided for some species in the 19th century. ) Under the Endangered Species Act, control is based upon federal lists of endangered or threatened plants and animals. Enforcement is implemented through various federal programs such as permits to encroach upon wetlands, and requirements for environmental impact statements. ENVIRONMENT 23 Although the protection of endangered species is mandated as being beneficial to mankind, there is no provision in the law for counterbalancing the adverse impacts upon endangered species with other losses to mankind that may result from the preservation of the endangered species.

This, however, is difficult to arrange. A more usual practice is to accept the drought situation as an indication that the regional supply of water is inadequate, and to initiate actions to develop increased sources. Another frequent course of action is to increase the withdrawal from streams, to the detriment offish and wildlife downstream, or of other downstream users. More complex arrangements are being developed in some western states. In 1997, agreements were finalized for Arizona to store and bank, temporarily, surplus water from its authorized allotment from the Colorado River—water, which otherwise would be taken downstream by California.
