Workshop Report/Summary

In order to focus attention and debate on issues in water science, technology, and policy, the Board introduced a colloquium series in 1985. These colloquia are held once a year following a scheduled Board meeting and are designed to provide public forums for discussion and debate, to stimulate research, and to provide an opportunity for Board members and liaison representatives to interact with the scientific and engineering community. The first colloquium, Drought Management and Its Impact on Public Water Systems, addressed the need for water conservation and planning for future water needs.
