Description

Clean fresh water is fast becoming a scarce resource for the United States as well as globally. As a result, meeting the projected water needs of 2025 will require an effective strategy that addresses storage, movement, desalination, conservation, and pollution. This project builds several basic mathematical models for determining water supply, demand, a water strategy, and its associated costs for the United States. This project will also discuss the economic, physical, and environmental implications of the strategy.
