This volume assesses the impacts of a number of water management policies developed by PAWN on drinking-water (DW) companies and their customers (households, commercial entities, and industrial firms). Chapter 2 summarizes briefly the major water-related problems facing DW companies in the Netherlands today, and shows why the author believes they will become more severe in the future. Chapter 3 describes the methodology in detail. Chapter 4 presents the impacts and associated discussion of PAWN's primary and groundwater cases on DW production, and on DW companies and their customers. Finally, in Chap. 5, the author assesses those impacts, draws some overall conclusions, and discusses the implications of those conclusions for the future supply and costs of DW in the Netherlands.
