Comprehensive planning for public water supplies in New York provides a logical method of anticipating 50-yr water utility needs. It introduces a general plan to meet the requirements of a multimunicipal area based on long-range population and water usage projections. Comprehensive planning may be divided into two elements: one involving the individual study; the other a systematic scheme integrating all studies into a statewide master plan. Major successes of the program include the completion of studies for nearly every county and adherence to the defined scope of services. Program flexibility has produced changes resulting in the broader definition of study areas. Periodic updating and review of the statewide system, if employing an automation data process, will require the creation of a uniform data base from the many different types of data presently available.
