Rice Water Irrigation: Conservation Management at the Lower Colorado River Authority, PRP 139
MetadataShow full item record
This project represents an evaluation of the Lower Colorado River Authority's agricultural water conservation program over the five-year period between 1988 and 1993. This research began in 1992 and was completed in 1995. Research findings show that the Lower Colorado River Authority achieved significant water savings through its water conservation efforts. Findings also show that further investments in agricultural water conservation will continue to produce water savings at substantially lower costs than investments in development of alternative sources of water. This research was supported by a grant from the Texas Water Development Board and by in-kind support from the Lower Colorado River Authority.
