Abstract
The report studies the legal and economic aspects of devices and policies to reduce water and wastewater flows. After reviewing the literature, the report examines building and plumbing codes from selected areas to see whether or not they provide constraints on the introduction of water-saving devices; and considers state laws to see whether they permit pricing schemes which encourage conservation. A computer model is developed, using water demand functions and cost functions from the literature, to determine the benefits to consumers and producers of various pricing systems. Through use of a second computer model, benefits are calculated for various replacement strategies in the adoption of water-saving devices.
