The Federal Water Pollution Control Act Amendments of 1972 establish area-wide (208) water quality planning requirements. Integral to 208 planning is the determination of a management structure to implement the plan. Criteria are presented to assist in the evaluation of alternative management structure. The recent development in England and Wales of regional water authorities is offered as one example of an innovative water management structure. It may offer useful information for 208 management structure planning currently underway throughout this country.
