dc.description.abstract"This report examines the structural elements that have entered into the development of the American water industry, with special reference to the California water industry. A variety of public and private enterprises engaged in water resource development and the rendering of water services are analyzed and evaluated in terms of the theory of organization used by public administration and administrative analysts, and the concepts of political economists. The level of productivity of the American water industry is examined as a consequence of opportunities for public entrepreneurship afforded by a system of overlapping jurisdictions and fragmentation of authority. The report sets forth problems in the assessment of organizational arrangements, examines the terms and conditions of political choice and reviews the choice of institutional arrangements in the development of the California water industry."en_US
