Through the risk analysis, it was able to examine whether the temporary water transfer causes deficit risk shift. The results show that the possibility of water deficit rate formed a normal distribution during normal period. When the amount of water transfer was increased during 1995-1996 the water deficit risk were raise 1%~2% compare to the average risk. In other words, when the amount of water transfer was increased, the overall irrigation has to face higher water deficit rate. Temporary water transfer introduces deficit risk shift indeed in Chia Nan area.
