This report summarizes the Pacific Institute’s economic evaluation of the Cadiz groundwater storage and transfer project. The evaluation is consistent with and elaborates on the analysis previously submitted by Professor Charles Howe of the University of Colorado at Boulder, a highly experienced water resources economist, in response to the draft Environmental Impact Report. It also updates the statements made by Gary Wolff, Principal Economist and Engineer at the Pacific Institute, in oral testimony before the Metropolitan Board of Directors on April 9 and 10, 2001.

Bacteriological assessment of aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) water in southwest coastal ...
Safe drinking water is scarce in southwest coastal Bangladesh. Harvested rainwater and rain-fed pond water are the main sources of drinking water for people living in this area. Both government and non-government organizations are promoting aquifer storage and recovery (ASR) schemes to provide safe drinking water for this population. This study assessed the bacteriological quality of both source water and abstracted water from five ASR sites. Water sampling and laboratory analysis for indicator bacteria and...
