Abstract

Tapping water sources in the American West exacts a high toll on the pocketbook, according to a report released on December 10 by a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit research foundation. Researchers from the foundation Resources for the Future (RFF) stated that the value of water in the West is higher than in the rest of the country, largely because of its withdrawal uses.
