Abstract : The purpose of this paper is to estimate the role which water supply from the Feather River Project should play, if rational economic considerations governed, in the calculations of Southern California. It is suggested that the responsible Southern California authorities should insist on a similar report before deciding whether they are willing to bear--or rather, have their constituents bear--the additional cost required to enlarge the Project to allow deliveries to Southern California.
