1st PhD-paper published by David Kuhn: Infrastructural lock-ins in long-distance water systems of Germany

More transfers of water over long-distances are prepared across Germany to ensure drinking water supply security in times of droughts and peak drinking water demands on hot summer days. Originally, such transfers were meant as an exception for e.g. metropolitan areas with high industrial and public water demand and unfavourable local water resources. Today, already 20% of Germans are supplied with water imported from other administrative areas or hydrological basins.
