Water resource systems have been an important part of resources and environment related research at IIASA since its inception. As demands for water increase relative to supply, the intensity and efficiency of water resource management must be developed further. This in turn requires an increase in the degree of detail and sophistication of the analysis, including economic, social and environmental evaluation of water resources development alternatives aided by application of mathematical modeling techniques, to generate inputs for planning, design, and operational decisions.

This paper was written as part of a collaborative study on water resources problems in Southwestern Skane, Sweden, pursued by IIASA in collaboration with the Swedish National Environmental Protection Board and the University of Lund, and completed in 1982. The purpose of this paper was to examine the municipal water pricing system as it now exists in Skane and to compare it with the two-part tariff system. The paper discusses the important relationship between the water pricing system and sudden shifts in municipal water demand.
