Abstract:

It is zero hour for a new US water policy. At a time when many countries are adopting new national approaches to water management, the US still has no cohesive federal policy, and water-related authorities are dispersed across more than thirty agencies. Here, at last, is a vision for what the US as a nation needs to do to manage their most vital resource. This book presents analysis and recommendations for a new federal water policy to confront these national and global challenges at a critical time.
