dc.description.abstractThis study examines future water management options for the Upper San Pedro Basin. It is an effort to better understand the water related social values present within the basin and how they might be used to formulate sound water resource policy. To this end, techniques based upon decision analysis were employed to elicit and analyze the judgements of a sample of basin residents regarding water management. Relevant social values for the management of water were identified and then the Multi-Attribute Tradeoff System (MATS) program was utilized to rank available water management policy options. No option was found upon which all groups agreed, but directions can be provided for the development of future policies.
