Virtual Water Accounting: A New Framework for Water Management in the Great Lakes

CEU TYPE: Technical
IEPA#: 7951

Summary: What is Virtual Water Accounting? Virtual water refers to the volume of water consumed in producing a good or service. Virtual water exports and imports from or to a watershed are the volumes of virtual water associated with the export or import of goods or services from or to the watershed. This study focuses on a new framework for accounting for water withdrawals and impacts of withdrawals on ecosystems in the Great Lakes basin, based on virtual water accounting. The framework has important implications for water users in the basin, especially in the management and planning of local water resources.
