This collection contains 395 papers reflecting current research and practice in the world of environmental and water resources engineering, with a special focus on managing water across local and national boundaries. The theme of crossing boundaries is explored in papers on the Rio Grande River, transboundary groundwater issues, interbasin transfers, and international impacts of climate change. Special sessions examine the recently refurbished Panama Canal and the resiliency of the Gulf Coast.
