Concerns in Water Supply and Pollution Control: Legal, Social, and Economic.
Burke, D. Barlow, Jr.; And Others
This bulletin contains three articles which focus on ground water's potential as a dependable supply source and some of the problems impeding the development of that potential. The authors' concerns are discussed from the vantage point of their areas of specialization: law, sociology, and economics. The first author states that water law abounds with unanswered questions and administrative efforts to isolate water's use for public consumption from its many other uses are equally arbitrary. In the sociological area, there seems to be a failure on the part of all citizens to understand water supply and pollution issues. The economist estimates that available ground water resources might be able to satisfy projected water supply needs in Rhode Island at costs significantly lower than those associated with surface reservoirs.
