Subject

Water management during droughts

Description

The purpose of the report was to explain the procedure for cooperative federal-state drought preparedness studies, to indicate how the studies related to the longstanding principles and guidance for federal water resources investigations, and to indicate the means of implementing conclusions arrived at in any given region. This 1994 report, developed during a four-year National Study of Water Management, summarizes the method of improving water management during drought. The method was tested and refined in four field studies in different parts of the country, in which teams of water managers and users worked together to reduce drought impacts. In each case, the situations were complex, involving may different uses of water. Because state and local responsibilities were involved, a joint cooperative approach between state and federal agencies was necessary to provide satisfactory answers.
