Hydrodiplomacy on Forester Creekby Lisa T. M. Vomero-Inouye, (Aff.M.ASCE), WEST Consultants, Inc, Carlsbad, United States,
Abstract: The goal of this paper is to share information regarding political battles confronting the engineer with regards to drainage issues and concerns. Very often drainage boundaries do not know the political boundaries; therefore, they readily cross them! Problems result primarily because these various political entities do not have the same hydrology methods, procedures or design criteria. There are further technical problems with regards to the hydraulics of this water crossing boundaries, such as: the channel's flow regime supercritical or subcritical, improved versus unimproved channels, uncontained or split flows as well as maintenance issues. The answer to these problems is listening and cooperations.
