Citation

Howe, Charles W, and Orr, Douglas V, Effects of agricultural acreage reduction on water availability and salinity in the Upper Colorado River Basin: .

Summary

Consideration is given to the costs in terms of regional income likely to be lost if irrigated acreages were to be reduced in the Upper Main Stem subbasin of the Colorado River as a means of freeing water for alternative uses and reducing salt loadings. The cost estimates, known to be biased upward, appear competitive with other water augmentation and salinity reduction programs. Published in Water Resources Research, volume 10, issue 5, on pages 893 - 897, in 1974.
