ABSTRACT
The article provides information on water auctions and prices. The allowable minimum bid to obtain senior rights to an acre-foot of water in an auction in New Mexico's Pojoaque and Espanola valleys is $25,000. $17.10 is the highest bid allowed for an acre-foot of water from Grand Junction, the supplemental irrigation program of Colorado, where the home-owners outbid ranchers 13 to 5. The Phoenix Groundwater Replenishment District pays $240 per acre-foot for Central Arizona Project water. The estimated cost for the desalination of ocean water is $6,000 per acre-foot.
