Created in 1849, the Department of the Interior--America's
Department of Natural Resources--is concerned with the management,
conservation, and development of the Nation's water, wildlife, mineral,
forest, and park and recreational resources. It also has major
responsibilities for Indian and Territorial affairs.
As the Nation's principal conservation agency, the Department of
the Interior works to assure that nonrenewable resources are developed
and used wisely, that park and recreational resources are conserved for
the future, and that renewable resources make their full contribution
to the progress, prosperity, and security of the United States--now and
in the future.
This is one of a continuing series of reports designed to
present accounts of progress in saline water conversion and the
economics of its application. Such data are expected to contribute to
the long-range development of economical processes applicable to low-
cost demineralization of sea and other saline water.
Presented here are the results of a first study of user cost
differentials due to mineral content in municipal water supplies. The
costs are specifically related to total dissolved solids, not to hardness.
They are representative of costs incurred by residential, commercial,
public and institutional water users, as well as by the utilities them-
