Description
Sponsored by the Task Committee on the Role of Technology in Water Resources of the Water Resources Planning and Management Committee of the Environmental and Water Resources Institute of ASCE.

This report examines the impact of technology on water resource planning and management—both historically and into the future. Because technology plays a vital role in influencing sound decisions regarding water resources, this study examines it from various vantage points. Selected case studies cover a variety of settings, materials, and insights into new technological approaches.

Topics include:

  • the range of technologies applicable to water resource planning, management, and policy making ;
  • research and analysis of new technologies, such as adaptive management, shared vision modeling, and geographic information systems; and
  • a foundation for research into similar disciplines.

This report is a valuable resource for students, educators, and practicing engineers working in the area of water resources planning and management.
