The concept of coupled alternatives is an emerging engineering issue in master planning for water resources management. Coupled alternatives involve the concurrent evaluation of water supply and wastewater disposal with respect to total water resources management, as opposed to incremental planning of separate water supply or wastewater disposal alternatives. This requires a multidisciplinary approach in water resources management that differs from the way most public utility officials have historically viewed resource management issues.
