    Approaches to Planning Water Resources Jay R. Lund, Professor Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering University of California, Davis [email protected] 30 March Abstract This paper attempts to summarize and organize various technical approaches often seen or discussed for water resources Size: 79KB. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) biologists work closely with the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, the Bureau of Reclamation, and state agencies to help develop federal water resource projects (e.g., dams, harbor development, flood control, and water storage projects) that meet the critical needs of local communities and conserve fish and wildlife.

    The mission of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is to deliver vital public and military engineering services; partnering in peace and war to strengthen our nation’s security, energize the economy and reduce risks from disasters.

And you can filter these search results by resource type and various geographic characteristics. The policy emphasizes the need to build on existing efforts to promote sustainable water infrastructure, working with states and water systems to employ robust, comprehensive planning processes to deliver projects that are cost effective over their life cycle, resource efficient and consistent with community sustainability goals.
