Sustainability of Engineered Rivers in Arid Lands: The Surface-Groundwater Connection

Abstract from the document:

High quality water supplies are critical for municipal uses and irrigation activities. Managing surface and groundwater quality and quantity effectively is becoming more and more important as human population continues to grow and the threat of drought persists. An integrated approach to river basin management that includes the analysis of surface and groundwater interactions is crucial in prioritizing resources for future water demands.
