Abstract:
Estimates of the variable costs for groundwater pumping and overdraft in Central Arizona are compared to the price of water delivered via the Central Arizona Project (CAP). The respective marginal costs of supplying irrigation water through each of the two alternative sources are compared to the marginal demand for water by farmers. Finally, the relative cost competitiveness of groundwater versus CAP water is evaluated against a number of alternative rates of energy cost escalation and groundwater decline.
