Abstract : The objectives of the Susquehanna River Basin Study were to evaluate the water resource potential of the Basin, to determine the water resource requirements of the Basin's increasing population, to analyze alternative solutions, to recommend programs necessary to manage this valuable resource to best serve the economic and social needs of the people of the Basin, and to preserve the Basin's high natural values for the use of the present and future generations. This volume presents, in summary, the findings of the Study and how the above objectives were met. It also describes the physical nature of the Basin and the characteristics of the Basin's population and economy, the backdrop against which planning took place.
