Part of: Water Forum '86: World Water Issues in Evolution


Starting in the 1960's, a series of water quality and water resources studies focused on the problems of the Chicago metropolitan area. Some of these studies were among the first to employ computers and to utilize the computers for the mathematical modeling of water quality, hydrology and hydraulics. These key studies formed the basis of the evolution of an integrated and comprehensive water resources strategy for the Chicago metropolitan area. The strategy is being implemented, and major elements of the strategy's regulatory and capital works foundations are in place. The diverse federal, State and local authorship of the studies has given the area's water resources strategy both a consensus and credibility.
