Abstract : The purpose of this Appendix is to define the extent of the water supply needs in these outlying areas and to present some potential projects or actions that the local jurisdictions might initiate to meet those needs. The projects presented here, if initiated, would not require Federal involvement or Congressional authorization. Since these actions involve single purpose water supply they would be funded entirely by local interests. Because the outlying service areas constitute a relatively minor portion of the overall MWA water supply needs and because of the absence of the Federal interest in solving their problems it was determined that a less then feasibility scope level of detail was appropriate for this part of the study. As such, this Appendix does not contain any specific recommendations for the service areas investigated. Instead, a prioritization of potential solutions is offered with a discussion of the advantages and disadvantages of any actions that might be undertaken locally. This document should assist local planners in understanding the future needs of their communities and the relative potential of alternative projects or actions to meet those needs. A more detailed planning investigation would be required prior to implementation of any of the alternatives discussed in this Appendix.
