Abstract : The study compares selected alternative methods of supplying emergency drinking water to inhabitants of fallout shelters. The respective costs and some of the qualitative considerations of each system were investigated, with particular emphasis on comparisons of municipal systems, trapped water, water containers, tanks, and wells. This study reports on the tradeoffs between cost, shelter size, and well depth of emergency water sources. The tradeoffs are investigated by a series of cost-sensitivity curves. The capabilities and details of the municipal water sources for two sample cities are also reported. (Author)
