Recognizing the increasing frequency of water supply problems, and the fact that many of them cannot be solved solely within county or other political boundaries, an integrated water management system is proposed. Recommendations are made regarding: (1) implementation of an integrated process for water allocation and water use management; and (2) analytic and other process options to facilitate the functioning of a planning system designed to improve water use-water allocation decision making processes. Inherent is the recognition that water use and water allocation are inseparable and that a dynamic and flexible water use forecasting-planning process should be the foundation for making decisions regarding how water is distributed among the totality of beneficial uses.
