Abstract:
A random sample survey of 100 city residents was conducted in Tucson, Arizona, to evaluate water-awareness and to test a survey instrument. Respondents were found to view water issues simplistically, but most believe that there is some degree of water shortage. Tucsonans appear to feel optimistic about affecting the water supply/ demand problem through their use patterns, and while they have misconceptions, they want to know more about "water realities." They think of their water use in terms of cost and are evenly divided on whether voting may provide them any control over water management policies. The research design was moderately successful, providing for the achievement of the objectives, but with less well-defined results than had been hoped. The study results may be applied in developing future information campaigns, or the refined research approach may be utilized in designing future studies of water-awareness and related concepts.
