    JUNE 23-26, 1969

    Sponsored by the American Water Resources Association

    The American Water Resources Association is a non-profit scientific organiza- tion. It was founded in 1964 in response to the need for an organization to encour- age and foster interdisciplinary comication between professionals of diverse backgrounds working on a l l aspects of water resources problems. Annual conferences and symposia are held to provide opportunity for leading authorities to publicly discuss water resource subjects. Each f o m is designed to help professionals in related fields and interested members of the public to becme acquainted with cur- rent thought and developnent in water resource fields.

    The conferences have a broad range of contributed papers--the next is to be held in San Antonio, Texas, October 27-31, 1969. The symposia have more specific and integrated themes and all of the papers are invited. Our speakers at this Symposium are among the best qualified in their fields. We hope that they and other special- ists in the physical, biological, social and applied sciences, administrators from all levels of government, water users in agriculture, industry and other fields and other interested observers may gain increased understanding of water supply, demand, modification and control patterns in North America.
