About this book

Now in an extensively updated fourth edition, this essential text offers a comprehensive survey of all aspects of water resources planning and management. Utilizing an integrated water resources management (IWRM) framework, the authors show how this approach can clarify and help resolve resource management problems in ways that take into account complicated and interconnected social, economic, and environmental needs. Spanning the full planning process, Water Resources Planning considers legal and administrative issues; economic and forecasting factors; water quality, quantity, supply, use and demand; and model applications. The authors' goal throughout is to provide a practical foundation for improving ecological and human environmental systems for practitioners and students alike.

Media reviews

"This text provides an excellent introduction for the undergraduate/early graduate student on the topic of water resources planning and appropriate for courses in environmental planning as well as engineering. It includes excellent explanations of the most important topics related to water resources planning and recognizes and integrates the real-world contexts within which stakeholders, planners, managers, and decision makers operate. Its emphasis on integrated water resources management and collaborative planning and decision making is particularly important. This book will contribute to the short list of available texts that take a more holistic approach to water resources planning and recognize the 'human' aspect of successful water resources planning."
– Richard Palmer, University of Massachusetts
