Contents Notes
"Many areas of the United States (and globally) are struggling to match future water demand projections with the estimated safe yields of current water supplies. Even traditionally water rich areas such as the southeastern United States have struggled through recent droughts that have spawned new legislative activity, an increased focus on regional water supply planning, and a renewed interest in identifying sustainable water supplies. In the midst of this heightened focus on water supply, traditional methods and techniques for determining safe yields are now under review. These methods range from simple arithmetic spreadsheets to complex river basin models with numerous input criteria. Further, the potential impact of climate change on water supply availability has many water utilities facing an uncertain future. This Research Project focuses on the Catawba-Wateree River Basin in North and South Carolina, but the findings have wide application well beyond U.S. borders."--Executive summary. 1.
