Abstract: Industrial, political, legal, hydrological, and environmental issues surrounding development of energy and associated water resources are examined in this collection of papers presented at the Eastern and Western Conferences on Water and Energy in Pittsburgh, Pa., (May 24-26, 1982) and Fort Collins, Colo., (June 28-30, 1982). Water use and requirements, and wastewater treatment are examined in respect to the synthetic fuel industry, coal slurry pipelines, surface mining, hydropower, and oil shale production. Water conservation and reuse are also examined. Trends in energy/water legislation, policy and public management, as well as citizen participation in energy/water resource problems are reviewed. Attention is given to new energy resources and impacts, and to water related research needs for energy development. Planning and management for energy and water resource development are discussed including a review of issues regarding water allocation for competing uses such as agriculture versus industry. Among the case studies included are a review of citizen participation in the EPA Chesapeake Bay Program, a municipal hydropower development project, and projects on water recovery and wastewater volume reduction in industry.
