THE HYDROGEOLOGIST'S RESPONSIBILITY -- METROPOLITAN WATER RESOURCE PLANNING

AS THE POPULATION OF THE UNITED STATES IS CHANGING FROM A PREDOMINANTLY RURAL TO AN URBAN SOCIETY, SO THE TRADITIONAL ROLE OF THE HYDROGEOLOGIST IS CHANGING. NEEDS FOR HIS SERVICES ARE REFLECTING THE REQUIREMENTS OF COMPREHENSIVE WATER RESOURCE MANAGEMENT PROGRAMS. THIS TREND TOWARD URBANIZATION IS ALSO CREATING NEW, COMPLEX WATER PROBLEMS AND RELATED LAND PROBLEMS. COMPREHENSIVE WATER RESOURCE PLANNING OFFERS A MEANS OF SOLVING THESE PROBLEMS AND IMPROVING THE LIVING ENVIRONMENT. ITS EMPHASIS IS ON ALTERNATIVE MANAGEMENT MEASURES THAT CAN BEST BE PLANNED AND EVALUATED BY INTERDISCIPLINARY STUDY TEAMS, TEAMS THAT SHOULD INCLUDE THE HYDROGEOLOGIST. THE INADEQUATE COMMUNICATION THAT NOW EXISTS BETWEEN THE HYDROGEOLOGIST AND THE PLANNER CAN BE IMPROVED BY A CLOSER WORKING RELATIONSHIP. /AUTHOR/
