Abstract:

Water quality concerns at U.S. Army Corps of Engineers water resource development projects have increased in recent years commensurate with the growing use and popularity of these valuable resources. These concerns have prompted greater demands for environmental information upon which to base sound management decisions. However, increasing costs, limited operational funds, and reduced manpower are potential impediments to the Corps maintaining fully effective water quality monitoring activities. This problem is exacerbated by a growing requirement to obtain information that is both spatially and temporally complex. Continued success in managing these resources will, therefore, require the Corps to make innovative use of new and developing technology for the collection of environmental information.
