Abstract: This proceedings was presented at the 1990 Annual Civil Engineering Convention and Exposition in San Francisco, California on November 5-8, 1990. Out of the 47 sessions presented at the convention, this publication includes papers from six selected sessions sponsored by the Environmental Engineering, Irrigation and Drainage, and Water Resources Planning and Management Divisions of the American Society of Civil Engineers. Three sessions deal with water, food, and the problems of increasing demands on them. They present the global focus, water quantity aspects, and water quality aspects respectively. Another session deals with the critical issue of protection and treatment of ground water. The remaining two sessions give insight into water issues being tackled by the state of California, and water quality problems being handled in the Silicon Valley of California.
