Presents a variety of policy suggestions designed to improve the efficiency of water use in California. The author advocates integrated management of surface and ground reservoirs, which would result in the development of significant amounts of new water and might delay the need for new and expensive reservoir facilities. As weather forecasting technology becomes more reliable, conjunctive management becomes even more economically attractive.
