  • Water Management in the Next Century 

    Viessman, Warren, Jr. (Georgia Institute of TechnologyInstitute of Natural Resources, 1991)
    Water management policies are products of knowledge, modified by political forces. They are born of human perception of need, or confrontation with crisis. Federal and state statutes, case laws, regulations, and administrative ...
  • Environmental Ethics: Why Do We Care?
