Abstract: The proceedings of the 16th annual Water Resources Planning and Management Conference, which was held on May 22-24, Sacramento, CA, consists of four page extended abstracts for about 200 of the 250 papers presented. Since the theme of the conference was Water Resources for the Future: The Management Challenge, the sessions covered a wide range of topics having to do with the management of water resources. Some of the topics discussed include ground water modeling and contamination, computer applications for water management, urban drainage, weather modification, reservoirs operations, water transfers, and water use between states and countries. Besides covering a variety of topics, the methods of presentation also range from the theoretical applications of new engineering technologies to the reports on the successes, and failures, of completed projects, including their technical and social implications.
