This proceedings, Management of Irrigation and Drainage Systems: Integrated Perspectives, consists of 156 papers presented at the 1993 ASCE National Conference on Irrigation and Drainage Engineering held in Park City, Utah, July 21-23, 1993. The conference featured thirty-nine technical oral sessions, a computer poster session and a general poster session. The proceedings is comprised of four basic themes. They are: 1) Urban-agricultural and water transfers; 2) water quality issues and solutions; 3) wetlands, irrigation and water resources interactions; 4) and technical topics. Some of the topics included in these papers are: 1) Watershed hydrology; 2) ground water management and protection; 3) characterization of droughts; 4) effect of agricultural drainage on water quality; 5) GIS in design, operation and maintenance of irrigation systems; 6) computer software development for on-farm use; 7) engineering procedures used to quantify streamflow depletions; and 8) developments in surface irrigation. These proceedings should provide engineers with an insight into some of the most recent developments in irrigation, drainage, hydrology, wetlands engineering, hydraulics, and water requirements.
