Suggested Components of a State Water Resources Plan

Task Committee on State Water Resources Planning Assessment of the Water Resources Planning Council of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE


The purpose of this chapter is to present the authors' views on: state water resources planning objectives, components of state water resources planning processes, and on contemporary water resources planning issues. The intent is not to prescribe a universal planning approach for all states, rather it is to identify practices and considerations that comprise a toolbox for water resources planners to use in designing planning programs to fit their state's circumstances and needs.
