Abstract:

This report is prepared in accordance with guidelines, objectives and projections set forth by the Water Resources Council which is directing a national effort toward regional comprehensive framework planning. It includes the main report and 16 supporting appendixes. Estimated requirements for water and related land resources within the Region are based on an assigned portion of a set of national projections of March 1968 developed by the Office of Business Economics, U.S. Department of Commerce and Economic Research Service, U.S. Department of Agriculture. This study evaluates the adequacy of water and related land resources in the Great Basin Region to meet these projected requirements through selected time frames to 2020. The resultant program considered with framework plans of the other Regions, permits a general evaluation of the national capacity to meet projected requirements for water and related land resources for the next 50 years.
