This proceedings, "Water Resources and the Urban Environment", contains extended abstracts presented at the ASCE 25th Conference on Water Resources Planning and Management held in Chicago, Illinois, June 8-10, 1998. While many of the papers address traditional topics such as hydrologic and hydraulic modeling, protection of drinking supplies, and reservoir operation, more recent issues such as groundwater modeling, water resource problems in the developing world, and water quality of urban runoff are also explored. Some of the major topics discussed include: urban stormwater management; geograp

There has been a lot of discussion among policymakers, particularly within the Clinton Administration, about how to make U.S. economic indicators, such as GNP, more accurately reflect the state of the environment. This book explores the major issues and controversies involved in incorporating natural resources and the environment into economic accounts. The first section of the volume, based largely on a three-day workshop of experts in the field, explains the possibilities and pitfalls in so-called "green" accounting. This is followed by a selection of nine individually authored papers, inclu
