This is a reference intended to integrate principles of water resources management with applications to current water and environmental issues through case studies. It presents a new approach to the subject for water industry engineers and managers who are required not only to understand complex water resource systems but must coordinate and negotiate economic, legal, and regulatory issues dictated by the public and private sectors. Water management principles are covered first and then applied by case studies drawn from real situations.
