A study of annual water use in Southern California is made in order to determine the cause of unusually high demands in 1987. Regression analysis of the demands and analysis of ratios of observed to expected demands show that total demand is within the expected range but that the share of the total water supplied by long-distance water transfers increased significantly in 1987. More research is needed to clarify the reasons for this phenomena.
