Inter-Basin Water Transfer
For additional information, see the Global Shipping Program terms and conditions - opens in a new window or tab No additional import charges on delivery Delivery: Estimated between Thu. Since conveyance of water between natural basins are described as both a subtraction at the source and as an addition at the destination, such projects may be controversial in some places and over time; they may also be seen as controversial due to their scale, costs and environmental or developmental impacts.
In Texas , for example, a Texas Water Development Board report analyzed the costs and benefits of IBTs in Texas, concluding that while some are essential, barriers to IBT development include cost, resistance to new reservoir construction and environmental impacts. Of 44 recommended ground and surface water conveyance and transfer projects included in the Texas State Water Plan, 15 would rely on IBTs. These more modern transfers have been justified because of their potential economic and social benefits in more heavily populated areas, stemming from increased water demand for irrigation , industrial and municipal water supply , and renewable energy needs.
These projects are also justified because of possible climate change and a concern over decreased water availability in the future; in that light, these projects thus tend to hedge against ensuing droughts and increasing demand.
In some cases where desired flow is not provided by gravity alone, additional use of energy is required for pumping water to the destination. Projects of this type can also be complicated in legal terms, since water and riparian rights are affected; this is especially true if the basin of origin is a transnational river. Furthermore, these transfers can have significant environmental impacts on aquatic ecosystems at the source.
In some cases water conservation measures at the destination can make such water transfers less immediately necessary to alleviate water scarcity , delay their need to be built, or reduce their initial size and cost. There are dozens of large inter-basin transfers around the world, most of them concentrated in Australia, Canada, China, India and the United States. Their primary purpose usually is either to alleviate water scarcity or to generate hydropower.
The Central Arizona Project CAP in the USA is not an interbasin transfer per se , although it shares many characteristics with interbasin transfers as it transports large amounts of water over a long distance and difference in altitude. The CAP transfers water from the Colorado River to Central Arizona for both agriculture and municipal water supply to substitute for depleted groundwater.
However, the water remains within the watershed of the Colorado River, though transferred into the Gila sub-basin. Characteristics of major existing interbasin transfers and other large-scale water transfers to alleviate water scarcity. In Canada, sixteen interbasin transfers have been implemented for hydropower development.
Other interbasin transfers include:. Nearly all proposed interbasin transfers are in developing countries. The objective of most transfers is the alleviation of water scarcity in the receiving basin s. Unlike in the case of existing transfers, there are very few proposed transfers whose objective is the generation of hydropower.
