Description

This project’s objective is to assess the economic costs associated with potential changes in the reliability of supply for water users in various parts of the state. Previous research on water use in California has generally used data gathered from broad geographic aggregates. This research differs in that it gathered and analyzed data from individual water districts; which is necessary, because there is considerable heterogeneity among different water districts in California with regard to water source, the nature and age of water rights, the operational costs, finances, price structures, and other terms of service. This is a state-funded research study sponsored by the California Energy Commission.
