Managing water effectively means reconciling the often conflicting goals of conservation, irrigation, drainage, supply, flood control, hydropower, waste, recreation, and other needs. Water Resources Management: Principles, Cases, and Regulations gives you a complete framework for mastering the technical, financial, legal, political, regulatory, and administrative demands of 3/5(1). Abstract. While planning an irrigation project, estimating the crop water requirement followed by irrigation water requirement is one of the most important component, as it defines the whole scope of the project in terms of hydrological investigation and irrigation design parameter including command area planning, estimating the irrigation intensity, estimating the delta and .

Water Resources Planning. Water Resources Planning supports the TWDB's mission by collecting, analyzing, and disseminating water-related data; and, by providing other services necessary to aid in planning and managing the state's water resources. downstream. The linkage of water resources systems within a water basin make it important that water resource development planning be undertaken by multi-community groups so that the interests of all the communities can be properly served. This paper describes an approach to participatory multi-community water resources planning developed in File Size: 83KB.

Sustainable Water Resources Management presents the most current thinking on the environmental, social, and political dimensions of sustainably managing the water supply at local, regional, or basin levels. The twin challenges of ensuring an adequate water supply and the optimal allocation for different uses are compounded by changes in climate. WEAP ("Water Evaluation And Planning" system) is a user-friendly software tool that takes an integrated approach to water resources planning. Freshwater management challenges are increasingly common. Allocation of limited water resources between agricultural, municipal and environmental uses now requires the full integration of supply, demand.

Simply put, Water Resources Planning and Management is a must read book for all who wish to make a difference in how to plan and manage our scarce water resources.

Until, and unless, the insights from this book are widely adopted, we risk further degrad- ation to the most precious of all our natural resources.

Water Resources Planning and Management: An Overview. Water resource systems have benefited both people and their economies for many centuries. The services provided by such systems are multiple.

Yet in many regions of the world they are not able to meet even basic drinking water and sanitation needs. This book is open access under a CC BY-NC revised, updated textbook presents a systems approach to the planning, management, and operation of water resources infrastructure in the environment.

Such confusion can be reduced with the development and application of a planning approach. This paper attempts to summarize and organize various technical approaches to water resources planning.
