Water resources management history project

The water resources management history project is now underway under the direction of Bob Hennigan. The purpose is to record for succeeding generations the story of the programs and projects developed and implemented to meet the water resource needs of the people of the state and to recognize and pay tribute to the individuals who devoted their careers to this vital work.

Water resources management programs were/are essential to protect the public health, to protect and preserve public and private water supplies, to permit and promote economic development, to protect fish and wildlife, to preserve essential resources, to provide recreational opportunities, to provide hydropower, to protect against droughts and floods, to provide transportation, and to provide for wastewater disposal.

We all have a story to tell and in most instances we are the only ones who can tell it. You were there. Every related agency, municipality, consulting firm and their personnel are part of this story. We are looking for input such as reports, news stories, source data, and personal experiences. Please lend a hand if at all possible. Names and brief bios of the participants are part of the mix. Suggestions and recommendations are welcomed.

This history will cover all aspects of water resource management; however, the major focus is water quality management and the development of the water supply and wastewater infrastructure to meet the needs and standards of the time. Many thanks for your help and assistance on this formidable project.
