Incorporation of Agricultural Risk into Water Resource Planning Models
Federal, state and local planners in the United States have come to realize that our rapidly growing population, and the increased agricultural, municipal, recreational and industrial expansion caused by this population growth, is increasing the demand for water at an alarming rate. With this in mind, the U. S. Congress has instructed our federal agencies to investigate "The needs and possibilities for all significant resource uses and purposes of development, including, but not limited to, domestic, municipal, agricultural and industrial uses of water, ... and all relevant means (including nonstructural as well as structural measures) singly, in combination, or in alternative combinations reflecting different choice patterns for providing such uses and purpose."
