Abstract:
The thesis is designed to assist residents of the Upper San Pedro River Basin, Arizona, in their investigation of alternative water management institutions. The concept of institutions as rules used by communities to manage resources is used to describe several alternatives for managing water resources and then evaluate the alternatives with respect to the needs of basin residents. Alternatives include the Upper San Pedro status quo, Arizona's Active Management Areas, the Phoenix Groundwater Replenishment District, the Tucson Active Management Area Water Augmentation Authority, the Orange County Water District, the Kern County Water Agency, and instream flow protection institutions in several western states. None of the alternatives is found to be entirely appropriate for the Upper San Pedro basin, though features of all of them may be of interest to basin residents.
