“American Administrations: The Treatment to Water Resources”
Dr. Antonio Daniel Juan Rubio, Isabel María García Conesa

This paper aims at presenting the historical importance given from the different American administrations to water and its resources throughout the history of the United States, paying special attention to the last centuries. Nowadays, all of us are aware of the importance of preserving and maintaining our environment and its hydraulic resources as a means of securing a future world for everyone. Henceforth, the political class elsewhere largely focus their attention on these resources as a means of gaining electoral votes and public popularity at the expense of governing the country in question for a term. As a result, we are pretty much conscious of water importance and relevance for the conservation and betterment of our world. But has it always been like this? Have the different American presidents along history been as much concerned and worried in their daily papers, conferences or speeches about environmental issues as they are nowadays? The bare answer is no. What we therefore intend to explain here is how different the treatment to water resources has been given by the various American presidents at all their political affiliations along US history. By merely skimming out this paper, we can check out how much, in some instances, or how little, in some others, American presidents and their aides dared and cared for water resources.
