The comprehensive water quality management planning (COWAMP) program being undertaken by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania responds to the latest Federal legislation and regulations, as well as to state requirements. The study program, which has been divided into nine separate local studies, represents a coordinated statewide effort to establish a valid water quality management plan that responds to alternative environmental futures and features a precedent- setting degree of public participation. The Pennsylvania attack on the complex problem of creating realistic yet agressive water quality management criteria, based not only on the technological but also the social, economic, and land-use aspects of environmental planning. By articulating and incorporating environmental amenities unique to Pennsylvania, the program will be tailored specifically to the Commonwealth's needs.
