Colonization plan of the Western Hemisphere by Spanish and English, impact of different approaches to colonization on development of California, and historic legal basis for land ownership and water entitlements in California.
The memorandum examines some of the documents and references found in the CSUMB "Hornbeck Collection" and discusses the significance of the information as it relates to the colonization lands of the Western Hemisphere by the Spanish and the English, and the impact of the different approaches to colonization on the development of California and the historic legal basis for land ownership and water entitlements in California. It suggests how the historic land use and water entitlements of the State can be harmonized with the requirements of the California Sustainable Groundwater Management Act.
