Research was conducted by the Economics Department at SDSU in conjunction with the Water Resources Institute and the North Central Regional Center for Rural Development to determine perceptions of the extent of the impacts of rural water systems in selected regions of the state. Aspects of the re search were embodied in two studies. As part of a case study of the Brookings- Deuel Rural Water System (BDRWS), a random sample of area residents and public officials was personally interviewed. In another research project involving the Lincoln County Rural Water System (LCRWS) and the Randall Community Water District (RCWD), public officials of the region and new residential members of the rural water systems were surveyed through mail questionnaires.
