Total usable water supply can be increased by coordinated operation of surface and underground water resources. Under optimum coordinated operation, the unit cost of water supply storage and distribution can be a minimum. Efficiency in managing ground-water basins to bring about coordinated operation requires new concepts to be evolved and to be effectively applied. The principles and procedures for ground-water basin operation are investigated as an introduction to the symposium of which this paper is a part.
