Land use and drinking water supply: a spatial switching regression model with spatial endogenous switching

This study analyzes the impact of land use on the costs of drinking water supply using a sample of water supply services (Wss) in the Vosges department in France. We introduce a switching model to account for the interactions between management regimes (public vs. delegated) and Wss prices. This model also allows for spatial interactions between Wss and omitted spatial explanatory variables. The results confirm that forest land cover reduces the price of drinking water and that spatial factors influence the choice of management and prices. It was also found that the organization of the Wss influences water prices.
