This study analyzes national supply and demand and summarizes data on all water resources regions. Estimates of the potential for wastewater reuse and recycling are also presented. The technology for improving the water supply through augmentation and conservation is reviewed, and the most feasible implementation methods are discussed in detail. Three detailed studies of water sensitive regions presented in this report illustrate the regional nature of the issues, problems, and research needs. The areas are San Antonio, Texas, South Coastal area of Southern California, and the Yadkin-Pee Dee Basin in North Carolina and South Carolina.
