Abstract:

This study provides an aid for municipal decision makers of the Monterey Peninsula. Under certain assumptions, the result of this model provides optimal annual consumption given the current water supplies. The model employs present value of utility of private consumption by peninsula residents as the objective function. Water supplies are provided by the conjunctive use of surface reservoirs and a confined coastal aquifer. The Carmel Valley watershed was modelled using a statistical application of the Hydrologic Balance equations for ground water systems. Author
