The 1967 Water Code requires equalization of water rights per hectare in a "homogeneous farming area." Analysis of a typical region using representative farm LP models indicates that equalization would result in regressive income redistribution, whereas the optimum economic reallocation would result in progressive income, redistribution. Aggregate income gains in either case would not exceed 5%.
