Abstract : Conjunctive use water supply refers to be coordinated use of both surface water and groundwater to meet water supply needs. This coordination can take on many forms. It can be managerial where both surface water and groundwater are withdrawn in a coordinated manner; physical where the two resources are hydraulically interconnected; and legal where the use of one conserves the other for another time. What is common is the conjunctive use of both resources to meet water supply needs. There are many elements or tasks associated with conjunctive use planning. They range from the hydrology and hydraulics of the resources themselves to the legal rights associated with their use. This document is intended as a reference to assist and quickly focus on the necessary tasks. The major elements are described and important references cited.
