WATER QUALITY DIMENSIONS OF WATER RESOURCES PLANNING

Principles of hydrologic cycle provide more opportunities for land-water management than are presently utilized. Management of pollution from nonpoint sources should focus on available land management techniques rather than treatment. The immensity of the water quality problem requires use of all alternative means to reach least-cost solutions including low stream flow augmentation. Land, water quality, and water resource planning remain body fragmented at high cost to the taxpayer.
