Small Island Developing States (SIDS) have special conditions and needs that were identified for international attention in the Barbados Programme of Action for the Sustainable Development of Small Island Developing States and in the World Summit for Sustainable Development’s Johannesburg Plan of Implementation. Throughout these instruments, the importance of coastal and marine resources and the coastal and marine environment to sustainable development of SIDS is emphasised, with the Plan of Implementation specifically calling for support for the Western and Central Pacific Fisheries Convention (the WCPF Convention).

FileEstimated Use of Water in the United States 2000 by admin — last modified May 02, 2007 05:09 PM
By Susan S. Hutson, Nancy L. Barber, Joan F. Kenny, Kristin S. Linsey, Deborah S. Lumia, and Molly A. Maupin U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1268 U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey This Circular documents water use in 2000 and identifies important changes in water use that have occurred over the past 50 years. The early part of this history (1950 to 1980) showed a steady increase in water use. During this time, the expectation was that as population increased, so would water use. Contrary to expectation, reported water withdrawals declined in 1985 and have remained relatively stable since then. Changes in technology, in State and Federal laws, and in economic factors, along with increased awareness of the need for water conservation, have resulted in more efficient use of the water from the Nation’s rivers, lakes, reservoirs, and aquifers.
FileSustainability of Groundwater Resources by admin — last modified May 02, 2007 05:06 PM
by William M. Alley Thomas E. Reilly O. Lehn Franke U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1186 Today, many concerns about the Nation’s ground-water resources involve questions about their future sustainability. The sustainability of ground-water resources is a function of many factors, including depletion of ground-water storage, reductions in streamflow, potential loss of wetland and riparian ecosystems, land subsidence, saltwater intrusion, and changes in ground-water quality. Each groundwater system and development situation is unique and requires an analysis adjusted to the nature of the existing water issues. The purpose of this Circular is to illustrate the hydrologic, geologic, and ecological concepts that must be considered to assure the wise and sustainable use of our precious ground-water resources. The report is written for a wide audience of persons interested or involved in the protection and sustainable use of the Nation’s water resources.

FileGroundwater Level Monitoring and the Importance of Long-Term Water-Level Data (Alley/Taylor) by admin — last modified May 02, 2007 04:55 PM
U.S. Geological Survey Circular 1217 Charles J. Taylor William M. Alley Groundwater is among the Nation’s most precious natural resources. Measurements of water levels in wells provide the most fundamental indicator of the status of this resource and are critical to meaningful evaluations of the quantity and quality of ground water and its interaction with surface water. Water-level measurements are made by many Federal, State, and local agencies. It is the intent of this report to highlight the importance of measurements of ground-water levels and to foster a more comprehensive and systematic approach to the long-term collection of these essential data. Through such mutual efforts, the Nation will be better positioned in coming decades to make wise use of its extensive groundwater resources.
FileEvolving Issues and Practices in Managing Ground-Water Resources by admin — last modified May 02, 2007 04:32 PM
Circular 1247 U.S. Department of the Interior U.S. Geological Survey Hydrologic stresses throughout the 20th century and presently (2003) have caused the depletion and degradation of our Nation’s vital ground-water resources in many areas. Management strategies have been and are being implemented to optimize use of our ground-water resources with respect to achieving sustainability while mitigating the consequences of future withdrawals. The seven case studies presented herein show how the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS) in cooperation with local, State and other Federal agencies, as well as the private sector, have addressed some of the complexities of ground-water management using scientifically-based hydrologic studies and hydrologic monitoring. It is clear that the managed conjunctive use of our combined ground-water and surface-water supplies, and the artificial recharge of our ground-water systems present both challenges and opportunities. How well we manage these options depends upon best science practices, improved understanding of the resources, and the informed consensus of all stakeholders. s/s
