Abstract

Feasibility guidelines for proposed and existing community rural water supply systems have been developed around such parameters as population density, size of group, and ability to repay. However, these guidelines were based on more densely populate areas where water is used primarily for domestic purposes. These guidelines do not necessarily fit situations where population density is low and water availability enters in as a factor of livestock production. It is apparent that guidelines need to be developed for such situations. With this intention, the objectives of this study were established as follows: 1. Determine what criteria are pertinent to the economic justification of rural water supply systems in livestock production areas. 2. Determine the feasibility and relative merits of various rural water supply systems for predominantly livestock producing areas of South Dakota.
