Viessman, Warren, Jr.
MetadataShow full item record
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 actions define U.S. water policies. New courses of action reflect changing times and perspectives, but old ones cling to traditions and many are associated with institutions having parochial rather than global outlooks. Furthermore, many outdated policies linger on interminably, often conflicting with contemporary beliefs. The issues identified herein concern Georgia and every other state.
