The economic analysis in the report provides illustration of the potential economic pitfalls of failing to secure adequate water supply to meet the needs of a growing region. In that light, this work is designed to be illustrative, rather than predictive, as San Antonio has an opportunity to make policy and investment decisions that can turn water availability from a potential challenge into an opportunity to create a competitive advantage versus other areas that have not adequately provided for future water needs. Decisions made today will have an enormous impact on the economy of tomorrow, with investments in basic infrastructure likely to pay increasing dividends going forward.
