Abstract: Marketing and infrastructure are two areas of growing interest and importance in engineering. Nearly every engineering discipline now uses some form of marketing to promote its products and services. This is especially true in the water resources field. In addition, much attention has been given in recent years to the deteriorating state of the nation's infrastructure. The nations water resources infrastructure needs are reviewed. Planning methods for infrastructure rehabilitation and replacement of water resources and utilities, including case reports on renewing a pumping station and a distribution system, are covered. Solutions to institutional constraints in water marketing and a report on water marketing in California are presented.

Subject Headings: Water resources | Marketing | Pumping stations | Deterioration | Rehabilitation | Lifeline systems |
