Working C
Proposed Main Issues for
Water Supply Development and Funding Group

September 30, 1996

I. Supply Development and Related Planning and Regulatory
Issues/Assincment of Responsibilities

A. Development

1. Sources (Use of public lands; water conservation
as alternative supply; conservation/alternative
supplies in water shortage areas; local sources
first; designated uses)

2. Treatment technologies (Cost/benefit analysis of
treatment/supply methodologies; disposal of
concentrate from reverse osmosis and desalination)

3. Related Planning and Regulatory Issues (Wellfield
regulation; sustainability of water supplies and
ecosystems; safeguards for water transfers;
determinations of feasibility; water allocation;
linking land and water management; levels of
service as related to water supply; statutory
recognition of regional water supply planning;
relationship of RWSPs to water use permitting;
independent scientific peer review)

B. Assignment of Responsibilities

1. General Task--Defining the roles of WMDs, other
agencies, and nongovernmental interests in both
traditional and alternative water supply
development

2. Specific Considerations (Assigning authority to a
single entity within a WMD for water supply
research, planning, and regulation; local
government primacy in determining appropriate
water supply alternatives or options for
facilitating water supply development)

II. Funding/Incentives/Economics


A. Funding

1. Identification of all Long-Term Funding Mechanisms
for both traditional and alternative water supply development, including
capital works projects, to meet existing and future needs (P-2000-type
program; water use fees; dedicating a fixed percentage of each WMD's
existing budget)

2. Other Funding Issues (Funding for demonstration of new or emerging
water treatment and supply technologies; levy of optional surcharge on
interjurisdictional water transfers to further develop alternative water
supplies; guidelines for state agencies to identify federal, state, and
regional funding mechanisms available for regional and local water
supply development)

B. Incentives

1. General Task--Identifying economic and regulatory incentives to
promote economically, environmentally, and technically feasible
traditional and alternative water supply alternatives (includes
conservation)

2. Specific Considerations (Requiring that the term of water use permits
remains in effect as long as the amount of water available to use is
consistent with current and future demand)

C. Economics

1. Cost Issues (True cost and value of water; cost comparisons; full-cost
recovery)

2. Cost-Distribution Issues (Who pays for new sources; equitable
distribution of costs)
