A Report by the AWRA Policy Technical Committee

A result of AWRA's 3rd National Leadership Institute (NLI) Workshop for State Officials, authors were asked to follow a common format, providing an elevator speech that succinctly describes the purpose of each water plan. From there, they point the reader to the statutory underpinnings, to help set the formal context. Authors then describe the planning horizons, scheduled deadlines and current status of their plans. They have provided a summary of the process used and the resulting components contained in each plan, taking the time to make some observations about the challenges overcome and the challenges that remain with these efforts. Finally, authors provide a sense of scope and scale, both geographically and financially. In the concluding chapter, the publication editors highlight some of the common themes and threads observed along the way.
