Economic Issues Regarding Water Quality Objectives in the Grassland Basinby Dennis Wichelns,
Document Type: Proceeding Paper
Part of: North American Water and Environment Congress & Destructive Water
Abstract: A conceptual framework is presented for evaluating the potential costs and benefits of water quality objectives in the Grassland Basin. The investments and expenditures required to achieve selenium load and concentration objectives are examined, using current estimates of the costs to remove selenium from drainage water and to build facilities for transporting drainage water to the San Joaquin River. The estimated costs provide lower-bound estimates of the benefits needed to offset the costs of imposing the water quality objectives.
