Tidewater Virginia's Water Supply Problem: Implications for State Water Managementby William E. Cox, Virginia Tech, United States,
Abstract: Attempts to expand water supply in response to continuing urban growth in Virginia's Tidewater region has produced prolonged conflict among the area's local governments and between Tidewater and other regions, both in Virginia and North Carolina. The nature of this conflict reflects Virginia's water management institutions and provides a basis for their evaluation. After a brief overview of the problem, this paper attempts to identify the implications of the experience of the Tidewater region for Virginia's water management program.
