Resilience: On‐going wave or subsiding trend in flood risk research and practice?
Published Online: Nov 03 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1397
Journal articles in highly cited water‐related journals on “resilience” underline the rising usage and continuing trend since at least a decade in flood risk management (FRM).

The path towards groundwater management in the borderlands of Mexico and Texas
Published Online: Oct 21 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1399
Water issues are always local, even when transboundary. Therefore, efforts to manage these resources should be pursued and implemented at the local and regional levels, regardless of binding or nonbinding nature of any arrangements.

Overviews

Implementation of property‐level flood risk adaptation (PLFRA) measures: Choices and decisions
Published Online: Dec 05 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1404
As there are several options to adapt a private house to flood hazards, a homeowner is confronted with several decisions concerning the costs, practicability, and implementation process of such. The images demonstrate a few examples of PLFRA measures such as elevation, dry flood‐proofing, and adapting the building shape.

Groundwater governance: Addressing core concepts and challenges
Published Online: Oct 11 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1392
Managerial‐focused approaches to groundwater governance have not succeeded to improve the situation of the resource and fail to reconcile the fundamental dynamics of groundwater as a resource and governance as a sociopolitical phenomenon. As a result, solutions based on these existing approaches remain partial at best.

Advanced Reviews

A review of the pesticide MCPA in the land‐water environment and emerging research needs
Published Online: Dec 03 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1402
The soluble herbicide 2‐methyl‐4‐chlorophenoxyacetic acid (MCPA) is poorly understood, yet frequently used in agriculture and causes breaches in legislative water quality standards. Identification of mitigation measures requires further insights into MCPA's degradation and transportation pathways and ecotoxicological effects.

Why is state‐centered groundwater governance largely ineffective? A review
Published Online: Oct 21 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1395
The ineffectiveness of state‐centered groundwater governance must be understood through a political analysis of state‐society relationships. Favorable drivers and contexts for state‐centered governance are identified but shown to be rare in practice.

Focus Article

Nutrient loading and nonstationarity: The importance of differentiating the independent effects of tributary flow and nutrient concentration
Published Online: Nov 20 2019
DOI: 10.1002/wat2.1396
Causal structure depicting influent (tributary) flow and influent (tributary) nutrient concentration as the direct causes of both lake nutrient concentration and nutrient load. The absence of an arrow from nutrient load to lake nutrient concentration indicates that the correlation between nutrient load and lake nutrient concentration is not causal. The dashed arrow from influent flow to influent nutrient concentration indicates that nutrient concentration in the tributary may be dependent on flow.
