Abstract: This book contains papers presented at the ASCE National Water Conference held at the University of Delaware, Newark, DE, July 17-20, 1989. The National Water Conference was cosponsored by the Irrigation and Drainage Division and the Water Resources Planning and Management Division of ASCE. The conference focused on major water resources problems facing engineers into the twenty-first century. Papers discussed water quality problems from various stand points including nonpoint sources of pollution form urban stormwater and agricultural runoff. Management alternatives under drought conditions received significant coverage at the conference. Instream flow requirements were discussed as well as water based recreational needs projections. The Task Committee for rewriting the Salinity Manual of Irrigation and Drainage presented the several sessions on the manual update. Papers on urban hydrology and design of urban drainage facilities were presented as well as a review of ground water protection of strategies for the northeast states. This collection thus enables the engineer to focus on the major water resources issues of the immediate future.
