TR 13 - Impact of Irrigation Efficiency Improvements on Water Availability in the South Platte River Basin, M.W. Bittinger, R.E. Danielson, N.A. Evans, W.E. Hart, H.J. Morel- Seytoux, and M.M. Skinner, January 1979

Water-use efficiency is used to describe how well the resource is conserved or utilized. Higher efficiencies in particular uses are assumed to have the effect of releasing unneeded resources for use by others. The purpose of this study is to examine that question as it applies to water in the South Platte River Basin.
