An Analytical Basis for Valuing Potential and Realized Groundwater Protection Benefits in the State of Wyoming
This study surveys and synthesizes the existing literature about the economic value of groundwater contamination episodes, giving particular attention to extant knowledge about behavioral responses to parameter perturbations. Literature omissions are identified and an alternative ex ante valuation framework that incorporates risk attitudes, self-protection opportunities, and the use of market insurance to shift income to undesirable states is developed and its properties are derived. Finally, an empirical means to implement this framework by means of contingent valuation and hedonic property pricing methods is outlined.
