Review of the Economic Components of State Water Policy, Report No. 96-82, April 1997
Full report in PDF format

  • Although the basic concepts of Florida's water policies do not need to be changed, the policies do not provide sufficient economic incentives for developing alternative supplies and resolving serious conflicts. Improvements to existing water supply development and funding mechanisms are needed in order to achieve affordable and sustainable water supplies and protect the environment.
