Synthesis Report on the Importance of Water to the US Economy released by the EPA
Below is a link to the Synthesis Report on the Importance of Water to the US Economy released by the EPA. This report is intended to help raise awareness of water’s importance to our national economic welfare and to summarize information that public and private decision-makers can use to better manage our water resources. It highlights EPA’s review of the literature and practice on the importance of water to the U.S. economy, identifies key data gaps, and describes the implication of the study’s findings for future research.
