Abstract : The general objective of the study was to develop the methodology for determining optimal allocation of water in Utah, given alternative assumptions and constraints. The approach was to structure a statewide model of water use and delivery in a linear programming framework, explicitly including the water supply system, various demands for water, and alternative water salvage, reuses and transfers under consideration by water planners. The optimal solutions to the statewide programming model were based upon net economic returns to water in the state given alternative assumptions and were, therefore, the economically efficient allocation of Utah's water supply.
