Principles and Practice

An integrated framework for water resources management

It has been said that "water is the next oil." A strong global
consensus has begun to develop that effective water management must
start at the watershed level, and that water management actions
must be taken in the context of watersheds, and the human
communities in them. Integrated Watershed Management: Principles
and Practice, Second Edition
presents a flexible, integrated
framework for watershed management that addresses the biophysical,
social, and economic issues affecting water resources and their
use.


Comprehensive in scope and multidisciplinary in approach, it
equips readers with the necessary tools and techniques to develop
sound watershed management policy and practice?from problem
definition and goal setting to selecting management strategies and
procedures for monitoring implementation. Ten years of practice
have demonstrated that the core concepts presented in the first
edition of this book remain true and important. This Second Edition
is fully updated to reflect current practice and recent experience
in watershed management, including:




  • New coverage of strategies for the selection and evaluation of
    public engagement processes




  • Sampling, data management, and computer simulation
    technologies




  • Recent legislative changes




  • International watershed issues




  • Many new case studies




Water resources planning and management is not just a technical
challenge; it is also a social challenge, and an opportunity. It
is, ultimately, a framework for human societies to shape, protect,
and improve the environment in which they live. Providing a
rational framework for the development of water resources
management strategies, Integrated Watershed Management, Second
Edition
is a one-stop resource for upper-level students and
professionals in environmental science, natural resource
management, and environmental engineering.
