The planning and management of water resources in the southeastern United States are surveyed, as documented in the 1975 National Water Assessment. The Second National Water Assessment of 1975 for the South Atlantic-Gulf Water Resources Region points to an overall well-balanced supply-demand ratio for water. Specific areas where severe problems have been identified include: water quantity, fresh-surface; water quantity, ground; and water quality, fresh-surface. How water resources have been affected by past planning policies is evaluated, and how future policy changes may further alter development concepts in the region is described.
