Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: World Water & Environmental Resources Congress 2003


The purpose of this workshop is to discuss with ASCE members the progress in developing a Standards document and Management Plan document associated with water quality management across international boundaries, a task associated with the Management Plan Subcommittee (MPS) of the Border International Water Quality Standards Committee (BIWQ) of EWRI. The MPS reported in Traverse City on an initial draft of ideas for a management plan. In Philadelphia the MPS will report on a complete draft of two documents, a Standards document and a Management Plan document. The goal of the session is to discuss the contents, with the intention of moving forward to develop a consensus document that could be brought through the ballot process. A copy of the proposed drafts will be circulated among BIWQ members prior to the meeting to facilitate a productive discussion.
