Abstract: This proceedings, Water Management in the '90s: A Time for Innovation, contains papers presented at the 20th Anniversary conference of ASCE's Water Resources Planning and Management Division held in Seattle, Washington, May 1-5, 1993. The conference theme is an acknowledgement of the need for water resources professionals to face major challenges in managing diminishing supplies for ever-increasing demands, in protecting valuable watersheds from urban and agricultural pollution, and in building and maintaining critical infrastructure with limited financial resources. The papers in this proceedings reflect a practical, problem-solving focus with emphasis on novel solutions for current and near future challenges. Included are papers from three symposia held as part of the conference: 1) Urban Runoff and the Environment, 2) Water Supply and Conservation, and 3) the National Drought Study. Other topics covered in this book are: 1) Computer-aided decision support systems; 2) the Endangered Species Act impact on major water systems; 3) international disasters; 4) geographic information systems; 5) global warming; and 6) hydropower planning.
