Abstract : The report presents in a systematic manner economic concepts and techniques helpful in analyzing alternative solutions to problems commonly found in planning for water supply and water quality. Seven economic studies published by the US Army Engineer Institute for Water Resources between 1971 and 1974, and related reports, were selected as source material for the reference manual. These do not cover in detail all facets of water supply, water allocation and water quality. The contents of the IWR sponsored studies fall under three main headings: Water Supply, Water Allocation and Water Quality. Waste Water Renovation for Reuse, which provides an alternative source of supply, was treated under water quality because of the problems raised by varying user tolerance to water of varying degrees of purity.
