Abstract: Proceedings of a specialty symposium held in conjunction with the 2001 World Water and Environmental Resources Congress in Orlando, Florida, May 20-24, 2001. Sponsored by the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE. Cosponsored by U.S. Geological Survey; South Florida Water Management District. This collection contains 32 papers addressing the integrated management of surface and groundwater systems. As population grows and land development increases, so to does the need for comprehensive management of sustainable water resources related to water supply, water quality, wetlands, and recreational issues. To address these issues, an integrated approach (combining planning and rule-making with technological development) is required to manage water resources. These papers explore the integration of the groundwater and surface-water systems into water resources management plans that solve problems in the areas of aquifer storage and recovery systems, artificial recharge, stormwater management, water quality studies, watershed planning and management, wetlands, and modeling. Topics include aquifer recharge and water supply; conjunctive use; modeling and case studies; planning, management, and permitting; and wetland, water quality, and best management practices.
