Problems of water use in the Fairbanks North Star Borough of Alaska, a typical urban-rural area in a sub-arctic climate are described. Water use characteristics of various segments of the local economy, water policy practice and the pricing and costs associated with various types of water use are discussed. The research indicated a gradual expansion of water consumption and requirements for an increased rate of public and private investment in facilities. The water supply system of this sub-arctic city appears to be unusually complicated compared to those of other U.S. cities. (Author)
