Abstract
Population growth, environmental constraints and climate change can adversely affect water supply systems’ ability to keep up with demand. Officials with state and local jurisdictions struggle to evaluate demand-side solutions — conservation and growth management; and supply-side solutions — additional storage either through reservoirs or ASR. One potential solution, the interbasin transfer of water (IBT), continues to intrigue water supply managers and generate controversy with downstream users and landowners.
