Abstract: This proceedings contains papers presented at the North American Water and Environment Congress ’96 of the ASCE’s Environmental Engineering Division, Water Resources Engineering Division and Water Resources Planning and Management Division, held in Anaheim, California, June 22-28, 1996. Also included in this proceedings are the abstracts of the papers presented at the Destructive Water Conference of the IAHS and ASCE held concurrently at the same location. The purpose of the North American Water and Environment Congress ’96 was to provide a forum of discussion and exchange of information on a broad spectrum of areas in water resources and environmental engineering, including planning, design, research and management. One major focus was on the international issues relating to the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). In addition, the Destructive Water Conference addressed a broad spectrum of issues related to disaster abatement and control for all types of flooding and accidental pollution. The papers and abstracts in this proceedings explore potential solutions to critical water resources and environmental problems. The topics covered include, but are not limited to: 1) Hydrologic and hydraulic analyses; 2) irrigation and drainage issues; 3) environmental impacts and mitigation; 4) surface water and groundwater studies; 5) flood damage and risk assessment; 6) bridge scour evaluation; 7) wetlands studies; 8) water and wastewater treatment; 9) geoenvironmental topics; 10) geographic information systems (GIS); 11) physical and mathematical modeling; 12) computer applications; 13) wildlife and aquatic habitat management; 14) U.S.-Mexico border issues; 15) U.S.-Canada water and environmental issues; 16) NAFTA related matters; and 17) international water and environmental problems and solutions.
