Abstract : The objective of this paper is to provide the water supply engineer or planner with some perspectives on the spatial aspects of water supply costs. Specifically, it briefly addresses the relationship between capital and operating costs in the transmission and distribution system and the interaction between costs, prices and usage. Finally, it discusses an approach to analyzing operating cost data so as to assess the impact of capital expenditures. (Author)
