This book explains how needs for increasing regional water supply are reconciled with other water needs and how water conservation and other demand management practices are used in time of drought. The book covers a number of new and unconventional types of methods that are beginning to be utilized, including the conjunctive use of ground and surface waters, better multiple use of storage, operational coordination between adjacent water systems, ozonation, desalination, water re-use methods of watershed protection, and septic system management. This timely volume also discusses complex arrangements for coordination between federal, state, and muncipal agencies, as well as investor-owned companies.
