Part of: Optimizing the Resources for Water Management

The resulting conflicts and inconsistencies this creates are well known but progress in overcoming them has been slow. Topics of concern include facilities and industrial siting; urbanization of land, agricultural development and operations; flood management; and environmental protection.
