A model to measure the economic efficiency effects of interbasin water transfer has been developed. It is capable of accommodating multiple uses, values in transit, and production interdependencies. By accounting for regional direct and indirect costs and pecuniary externalities, regional income redistribution impacts of interbasin water transfer schemes can be estimated. The marginal value product of an acre-foot of water used on irrigated cotton and .91 acre of land was estimated to be $33.32. In any complete analysis of water transfer projects, regional income distribution consequences of water transfer projects must be considered in addition to economic efficiency effects. Regions and people benefiting may be useful in predicting political effects of water transfer plans. (Author)
