Abstract: More than 200 public and private water experts from across the United States, Canada, England, France, Belgium, and Portugal gathered at Colorado State University, June 27-30, 1988, to participate in the 3rd ASCE Water Resources Operations and Management Workshop on Computerized Decision Support Systems for Water Managers. The technical papers presented at the Workshop document the advances in computer technology that have taken place in water resources management, with particular attention to practical inplementation. Additional papers from the academic research community provide a look at possible future advances and innovations in the field. This collection of writings will challenge water managers to take full advantage of today's computer technology in order to do a better job of managing and operating the systems for which they are responsible, as well as provide them with practical guidelines and actual experiences.
