Abstract:

This report presents the consolidated results of the comprehensive study of the water and related land resources of the Pearl River Basin. The basic objective was the formulation of a plan of development to provide the best use, or combination of uses, of these resources to meet the foreseeable short- and long-term needs. Requirements are based on a projection of the basin economy to the years 1980 and 2015. The principal needs are for flood protection, water quality control, recreation, fish and wildlife enhancement and agricultural land and water management. The most practical means to provide for these and other needs of the basin is through a coordinated comprehensive plan of structural and nonstructural measures.
