Valuing Drinking Water Provision as an Ecosystem Service in the Neuse River Basin

  title={Valuing Drinking Water Provision as an Ecosystem Service in the Neuse River Basin},
  author={Yoanna Kraus Elsin and Randall A. Kramer and W. Aaron Jenkins},
The valuation of ecosystem services such as drinking water provision is of growing national and international interest. The cost of drinking water provision is directly linked to the quality of its raw water input, which is itself affected by upstream land use patterns. This analysis employs the benefit transfer method to quantify the economic benefits of water quality improvements for drinking water production in the Neuse River Basin in North Carolina. Two benefit transfer approaches, value… CONTINUE READING
