Watershed and Water Resource Management

Watershed and Water Resource Management

This program delivers credible scientific information, practical guidance, and proven decision-support tools and technology assessments to help program members, regulators, and other stakeholders develop and implement effective strategies for watershed assessment and management, water resource sustainability, water quality trading, TMDL analysis, ecosystem protection, individual power plant water use, and condenser and cooling system design and operation. The program facilitates cost-efficient, risk-based strategies capable of achieving environmental, social, and economic goals. The projects in this program are complementary and integrated around watershed and energy/water resource sustainability themes. The resolution of most watershed and water sustainability issues will require a combination of results from two or more of the projects. For 2007, a new project has been added to the program, Advanced Cooling Technologies. This project was formerly in the Facilities Water Management Program (Program 56). It has been transferred to this program because its scope and content are complementary to and synergistic with the overall goals and objectives of this program.
