Improving water availability is a key reason for doing Holistic Management around the world. This is particularly true in semiarid regions where water access is often scarce. As soils are restored, water tables are replenished, rivers will run longer, and surface pools will stay longer into the dry season.

This paper investigates the grazing management assessment reports authored by Briske (2008), and Holechek (2000) in light of their claims regarding methodologies for grassland restoration advocated by Allan Savory. Rebuttals to the Briske and Holechek conclusions are provided by Teague et al. (2008), Gill (2008, 2009a, 2009b, 2009c), and Savory (2000).

To ignore the merit and potential of this innovation now, or to succumb to vitriol, would be a dereliction of our duty as stewards of this planet.
