This proceedings, Sustaining Urban Water Resources in the 21st Century, contains papers presented at the 1997 Engineering Foundation Conference held on September 7-12, 1997 in Malmo, Sweden. This conference brought together 90 international experts in the fields including engineering, sciences, planning, land development and landscape architecture to discuss problems, issues, and solutions associated with the development of stormwater management programs that truly sustain and enhance the urban water environment. Most technical sessions focused on case studies where a municipal or private development project resulted in clearly demonstrable improvement in an urban water resource. Other papers addressed the science and technology of urban runoff flow and quality management practices. This proceedings establishes a basis for development of sustainable urban water resources programs that embody the appropriate scientific, engineering, cultural and institutional structures to implement the programs.
