A WATERSHED PLANNING AND MANAGEMENT SYSTEM: DESIGN AND SYNTHESIS

This research develops a blueprint for a watershed management system, conceived for the South River Watershed in Virginia, that could be used in making decisions about the future development of any similar large urbanizing watershed. The investigation analyzes the problem of land-use planning and management, particularly the need for a system providing long-term rational management and allowing achievement of complex human goals and objectives. Twenty-two tenets of land-use management are cited as fundamental to the design and implementation of such a system, and major phenomena that have obscured or halted comprehensive management efforts in the past are analyzed.
