  • The 1997 Irrigation Suspension Program for the Edwards Aquifer: Evaluation and Alternatives 

    Ward, Ruby; Chen, Chi Chung; McCarl, Bruce A.; Keplinger, Keith O. (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1998-02)
    The EAA implemented a pilot irrigation suspension program in 1997 on 9,669 acres mainly in Medina and Uvalde counties with the objective of increasing springflow at Comal Springs, and providing relief to municipalities in ...
  • Economic and Hydrologic Implications of Proposed Edwards Aquifer Management Plans 

    Dillon, Carl R.; Jones, Lonnie L.; Williams, R. Lynn; Jordan, Wayne R.; McCarl, Bruce A. (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1993-03)
    The Edwards Aquifer underlies a large region in south central Texas extending from west of Uvalde to Austin. The karstic aquifer supports irrigated agriculture in the western part of the region, provides the sole source ...
  • Economic, Hydrologic and Environmental Appraisal of Texas Inter-basin Water Transfers: Model Development and Initial Appraisal 

    McCarl, Bruce A.; Cai, Yongxia (Texas Water Resources Institute, 2007-04)
    Water scarcity is becoming a pervasive and persistent problem in Texas particularly in the drier regions containing cities like San Antonio, Austin, and Corpus Christi while growth causes emerging problems in Dallas, ...
  • The Edwards Aquifer: An Economic Perspective 

    Merrifield, John D.; McCarl, Bruce A.; Griffin, Ronald C.; Emerson, Peter M.; Collinge, Robert A. (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1993-03)
    Business as usual has ceased to be an acceptable system for the Edwards because of the burden it imposes upon regional competitiveness and welfare. Nonrevisionist strategies such as surface water development and spring ...
  • Evaluation of "Dry Year Option" Water Transfers from Agricultural to Urban Use 

    Yu, Kang; Chowdhury, Manzoor; Keplinger, Keith; Jones, Lonnie L.; Lacewell, Ronald D.; McCarl, Bruce A. (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1997-04)
    This study investigated the economics of an Edwards Aquifer region "dry-year option" buyout directed toward decreasing agricultural water use in an effort to augment springflow. The research involved several phases. First, ...
  • A Farm-Level Evaluation of Agricultural Profit and Ground Water Quality: Texas Seymour Aquifer 

    Dyke, Paul T.; Harris, Billy L.; Benson, Verel W.; Ozuna, Teofilo Jr.; McCarl, Bruce A.; Lacewell, Ronald D.; Chowdhury, Manzoor (Texas Water Resources Institute, 1994-12)
    The Seymour Aquifer of north-central Texas is known to have elevated levels of nitrates. The design of economically sound policies for reducing agriculture's nitrate contribution to the aquifer suggests a need to evaluate ...
