This proceedings, Water Resources Infrastructure: Needs, Economics, and Financing, consists of four page extended abstracts for 45 of the 50 papers presented at the Water Resources Infrastructure Symposium held April 18-20, 1990 in Fort Worth, Texas. This theme generated interest in a wide range of topics such as financing of the infrastructure, cost sharing, maintenance and rehabilitation of urban water resources systems, regionalization of water supplies, and flood and drought management. Besides covering a variety of subjects, the methods of presentation ranged from the theoretical applications of new engineering technologies to case studies of actual successes and failures of completed projects. Thus, this proceedings provides both the practicing engineer and the researcher with a valuable source of information concerning the water resources infrastructure.
