The Pearl River Comprehensive Basin Study is part of the national comprehensive river basin planning program that has developed from recommendations in the 1961 report of the Senate Select Committee on National Water Resources and subsequent action of the Executive Branch and the Congress. The basic objective of this program is to plan for the best use, or combination of uses, of the water and related land resources to meet all foreseeable short- and long-term needs. The study has been directed toward developing an understanding of the existing and future needs of the Pearl River Basin providing a sound basis for, and recommendation of, an early-action program of measures that should be undertaken within the next 10 to 15 years and establishing a framework for future planning for the basin. It has been conducted as a coordinated State-Federal interagency study. Studies, investigations and preparation of the Pearl River Comprehensive report were performed through joint efforts of participating agencies.
