Changing Federal/State Water Resources Roles

by Terry P. Lynott, US Dep of the Interior, United States,

Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Planning Now for Irrigation and Drainage in the 21st Century


As federal agencies such as Reclamation undertake change on national and regional levels, the priorities and programs of state and local groups may, in turn, be affected. Increased coordination and cooperation between all levels of government and concerned parties can ensure that wise management of valuable resources continues despite a variety of constraints. The paper discusses Reclamation's future activities based on the reports, 'Assessment '87' and 'Implementation Plan,' which draw important conclusions about the role Reclamation can play as the United States makes the transition from the policies and practices of this century, to the changing needs and values of the next.
