The bulletin indicates the gains in the value of water that occurred in one irrigation district in Utah when transfers were permitted between irrigation companies after many years of the typical practice of restricting transfers to those within a given company. The exposition presents a description of the institutional setting before and after the transfer impediment was relaxed; a discussion of the development of the rental market; appraisal of the relation between transfer flexibility and economic efficiency; reporting of rental values and an identification of the variables influencing rental values; and presentation of the statistical results.
