    Water is now at the centre of world attention as never before and more professionals from all walks of life are engaging in careers linked to water – in public water supply and waste treatment, agriculture, irrigation, energy, environment, amenity management, and sustainable development. This book offers an appropriate depth of understanding. OWRB - Oklahoma's Water Agency - Our activities include water use appropriation and permitting, water quality monitoring and standards, financial assistance for water/wastewater systems, dam safety, floodplain management, water supply planning, technical studies and research, and water resource .

    Water resources management is a complex topic that requires consideration of a broad range of social, economic, and environmental interests. S.J. Marshall, in Reference Module in Earth Systems and Environmental Sciences, Water resource management includes consideration of all of the above disciplines of hydrology. Water Resources Research publishes original research articles and commentaries on hydrology, water resources, and the social sciences of water that provide a broad understanding of the role of water in Earth’s system. The paper presents four sets of data on sediment pickup rates subject to different purposely devised turbulent flow conditions.

    The book covers all aspects of water resource engineering from hydrology, hydraulics, and hydraulic structures to engineering economy studies and planning. It shows applications of these basics to water supply, irrigation, hydroelectric power, river navigation, drainage, waste water collection, treatment and disposal, and flood control/5. This book addresses current challenges of the water resources industry. this book stresses the need for coordination between current environmental regulations and water resources planning. Topics include: the environment, population and development, water supply, floods and flood control, navigation, hydroelectric power, irrigation.
