Part of: Waterpower '91: A New View of Hydro Resources


Competing for the scarce resources of our future is the byword of the 1990's. For the last century and more, the United States has been in the position of always having more resources to meet its ever growing needs. We now see the end of that era and enter a time when managers of all resources must look at the more difficult solutions of allocating what resources we have to a continually growing demand. Those solutions may not simply be for the development of more of the same kind of resource but more than likely will be for the utilization of the resources which exist in ways which now seem to many to be 'better.'
