 Abstract: The poor performance of many government or public
 irrigation systems is well documented. This study uses a model
 including internal and external assurance, commitment, and
 fairness to explain the performance of irrigation in the
 Philippines, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Maharashtra State in India.
 The suggested approach is superior to ones based on the concept
 of "free rider" or government failure. The analysis shows that
 the Philippines and Maharashtra have developed ways to improve
 assurance concerning the actions of government and other
 irrigators which has improved irrigation performance. In
 contrast, Sri Lanka and Nepal have provided little assurance in
 their government irrigation systems and performance is poor.

 Abstract: Physically based models of lakes require estimates of
 daily, spatially varied water and nutrientfluxes into the lake
 from surrounding watersheds. Often, however, only a selected set
 of streamsare periodically (monthly or biweekly) sampled. The
 objective of this study was to develop andtest a method for
 estimating daily flux of nutrients into a large reservoir using
 data fromsampling of selected watersheds. Flow rate, nitrate
 (NO3-N), total nitrogen (TN), soluble reactivephosphorus
 (SRP), total phosphorus (TP), and chemical oxygen demand (COD)
 were measured monthlyduring 1991 for eight watersheds that
 feed Lake Lanier in northern Georgia. Daily stream flow inthe
 eight streams was correlated to data from nearby USGS gauged
 stream stations, and dailynutrient concentrations were related
 to watershed land use and monthly variation in measured 
 concentrations. Fraction of agricultural land in the watershed
 (AG) was the only land use parameterthat correlated to
 nonpoint-source loads. Coefficients of determination for linear
 regressionsbetween AG and NO3-N, TN, SRP, TP, and COD were
 0.74, 0.73, 0.47, 0.84, and 0.52, respectively.  The
 relationships were tested on an independent data set consisting
 of two samples from 19additional streams. Coefficients of
 determination (r2) between measured and predicted data for the
 independent test data was 0.77, 0.52, 0.66, 0.64, 0.69, and 0.76
 for stream flow, NO3-N, TN,SRP, TP, and COD, respectively.
 Percentages of nutrient loads attributable to nonpoint-source. 
 whereas those attributable to agricultural  nonpoint source were
 about 15% for COD, 28% for TN, 34% for NO3-N, 40% for TP, and 70%
 for SRP.

 Abstract: In this paper the rate of groundwater extraction under
 the common property arrangement is the outcome of a dynamic game
 played with feedback strategies. The analysis clarifies the
 externalities associated with the common property extraction of
 groundwater and identifies an risk externality that arises when
 firms are risk averse. Identifying the various externalities
 bears on the development of appropriate forms of groundwater
 management. In particular, the risk externality would be unknown
 to the "watermaster" of a central control agency, suggesting the
 need for creative, decentralized forms of groundwater management.

 Descriptors: water-policy; right-of-access; markets-;
 property-transfers; western-states-of-usa
 Abstract: The debate over privatizing and water markets has moved
 back and forth for decades between the "I" and the "We"
 perspectives. Rather than either/or, a balanced "I&We" view of
 water institutions is needed. West is meeting east in water law.
 Public interest needs must be satisfied in appropriate decision
 forums, but marketing may prove a social improvement when used as
 a supplement. Balancing an I&We" institution involves
 establishing an acceptable or tolerable level of interference
 through judicious mixing of state, common and private property
 regimes. Third-party effects are eliminated as mutual gain arises
 in a variety of decision forums.

 Abstract: A river basin optimization model is presented for
 investigating performance of alternative marketinstitutions
 for water resource allocation.  We show that existing demands for
 Colorado Riverwater cannot be fully satisfied given mean
 annual flows of 13.0 million acre-feet at Lee's Ferry.Market
 transfers which minimize costs to consumptive users of such
 shortfalls may achieve aslittle as 50% of the incremental
 benefits possible with transfers, which incorporate the economic  
 benefits of hydropower production and reductions in river
 salinity.  Such efficient allocationswould require large
 transfers from existing Upper Basin consumptive users, and annual
 deliveriesto Mexico would exceed treaty obligations.

 Abstract: Option contracts for temporary use of irrigation water
 rights are evaluated as a less-expensive institutional
 arrangement for providing drought insurance for urban water
 agencies.  Desirable option contract provisions are suggested and
 a framework for evaluating the economic benefits ofwater
 supply options is proposed.  An integrated analytical system
 simulating the hydrologic,  institutional, and economic
 relationships for a case study area in northeast Colorado is
 developedto evaluate the economic feasibility of water supply
 option contracts.  Estimated present value benefits and
 sensitivity analyses indicate that dry year water options are
 economically viableover a considerable range of conditions.

 Abstract: Abstract: The impact of an ad valorem pesticide tax on
 cropping patterns and pesticide use was examined in the South
 Central Texas Crop Reporting District. Output supply equations
 were econometrically estimated and used in the simulation. A 25
 percent tax on pesticide was estimated to have major impacts on
 cropping patterns and on pesticide use. Assuming other input and
 output prices were unaffected, the supply of one important crop
 would fall by more than half. Demand for some of the highly
 soluble and persistent pesticides, which present the greatest
 threat to groundwater quality, would also decrease substantially
 (some as much as 50 percent).

 Descriptors: pollution-control; law-enforcement; costs-;

 Abstract: In programs for trading pollution abatement between
 point and nonpoint sources, the trading ratiospecifies the
 rate at which nonpoint source abatement can be substituted for
 point sourceabatement.  The appropriate value of this ratio is
 unclear because of qualitative differencesbetween the two
 classes of sources.  To identify the optimal trading ratio, we
 develop and analyzea model of point/nonpoint trading.  We find
 the optimal trading ratio depends on the relativecosts of
 enforcing point versus nonpoint reductions and on the uncertainty
 associated with  nonpoint loadings.  The uncertainty does not
 imply a lower bound for the optimal trading ratio.

 Descriptors: water-allocation; markets-; water-use; efficiency-;

 Abstract: Most of the effort being expended to revise western
 water policy concerns the maintenance of instream waters to the
 exclusion of traditional diversionary interests. Absent from the
 economics literature is a theoretical treatment addressing the
 interface between diversionary and instream water uses. At issue
 is the potential for refining market operations to accomplish
 efficient allocation in the presence of both diversionary and
 instream uses. Optimization methods are employed to examine this
 issue in a highly generalized framework. If a specific structure
 is adopted, markets and other incentive-based policies are
 demonstrated to be capable of efficient water allocation.

 Abstract: We compare the social welfare of pumping groundwater
 under central (optimal) control to that obtained under a private
 property rights regime in which firms are granted tradeable
 permits to the in situ groundwater stock. When firms are risk
 averse, both regimes are suboptimal, and the matter of which
 regime yields greater welfare is an empirical one. When firms are
 risk neutral, central control dominates the private property
 rights regime. Still, a stochastic dynamic programming model of
 Madera County, California, demonstrates that even in this case,
 the private property rights regime is a promising alternative to
 central control.

 Abstract: The growing interest in water market transactions among
 policymakers and water users has created a need for understanding
 market price behavior and the heterogeneous nature of water
 rights. This article analyzes characteristics of markets, water
 rights, and water transactions to identify attributes which
 affect market values and price dispersion within regional
 markets. Based on econometric analysis of market data, water
 commodity and transaction characteristics are shown to be
 significantly related to market prices. Price dispersion that is
 unexplained by commodity attributes is related to characteristics
 of the regional market, including the number and size
 distribution of potential traders, costs of obtaining market
 information, and heterogeneity of water commodities traded.
