The results of integrating the agricultural sector with the aquifer of the Pecos Basin are presented. In particular it provides steady-state solutions to hydrologic and economic equations in which imported water is artificially recharged to the aquifer and its cost is added to the cost of pumping. A two cell model for the Pecos Basin aquifer is developed. The hydrological solution of the model yields two linear steady-state functions which relate the water table in the two cells to other hydrological variables, such as recharge, discharge, and irrigation. The cost of pumping water is also estimated. The agricultural demand function for irrigation water is empirically estimated by applying the technique of parametric linear programming. (Author)
