Description

This proceedings, ""Water Management in the ""90s: A Time for Innovation"", contains papers presented at the 20th Anniversary conference of ASCE's Water Resources Planning and Management Division held in Seattle, Washington, May 1-5, 1993. The conference theme is an acknowledgement of the need for water resources professionals to face major challenges in managing diminishing supplies for ever-increasing demands, in protecting valuable watersheds from urban and agricultural pollution, and in building and maintaining critical infrastructure with limited financial resources. The papers in this proceedings reflect a practical, problem-solving focus with emphasis on novel solutions for current and near future challenges. Included are papers from three symposia held as part of the conference: Urban Runoff and the Environment, Water Supply and Conservation, and the National Drought Study. Other topics covered in this book are: Computer-aided decision support systems; the Endangered Species Act impact on major water systems; international disasters; geographic information systems; global warming; and hydropower planning.
