Abstract: This proceedings, Water Resources and the Urban Environment, contains extended abstracts presented at the ASCE 25th Conference on Water Resources Planning and Management held in Chicago, Illinois, June 8-10, 1998. While many of the papers address traditional topics such as hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, protection of drinking supplies, and reservoir operation, more recent issues such as groundwater modeling, water resource problems in the developing world, and water quality of urban runoff are also explored. Some of the major topics discussed include: 1) urban stormwater management; 2) geographic information systems; 3) hydrologic and hydraulic computer modeling; 4) groundwater management; 5) drinking water quality; and 6) international resources issues.
