This proceedings, "Effects of Watershed Development and Management on Aquatic Ecosystems", comprises papers presented at the Engineering Foundation Conference held in Snowbird, Utah, August 4-9, 1996. The conference brought together 75 experts in the fields of environmental sciences, and engineering to discuss problems, solutions, and issues associated with the preservation, maintenance, and re-establishment of ecosystems in urban areas. Technical sessions features include: approaches to expanding monitoring beyond water quality; advances in using toxicity bioindicators in urban aquatic ecosystem assessment; effects of watershed development on hydrology and aquatic habitat structure; impacts of watershed development of aquatic biota; consequences of watershed development on stream morphology; watershed development effects in arid and semi-arid regions; and management and institutional issues. The papers and presentations demonstrate that management or urban water resources embodies a diverse set of scientific disciplines and engineering issues. But they also reveal that no template currently exists for integrating these disciplines and issues into municipal programs for urban water resource management. This proceedings does, however, establish the basis for building an integrated approach to development of sustainable urban water resource programs that embody the appropriate scientific and engineering considerations, along with the institutional structure to implement the program.
