This water issue has been

This water issue has been bothering me for a while. I understand the need for the recognition of property rights, but how does one legitimately homestead water that is part of a lake/aquifer/river/ocean in a sustainable fashion that does not ultimately result in all the water reservoirs becoming drained of this precious resource?

Can anybody recommend some literature or an explanation that adequately deals with the issue of water resource allocation?
