Water resources planning in the Fraser River basin : an assessment of the principles in practice 1948-1989 Barrons, Jeffrey B.

Abstract

The purpose of this thesis was to assess the evolution of water resources planning in the Fraser River basin. This assessment was done by first, identifying the principles of water resources management and detailing their history of acceptance in the water management literature. The history of water resources planning in the Fraser River basin, more specifically the history of area planning in the basin, is then examined. The plans were then assessed using the principles of water resources planning as the criteria. The primary conclusion drawn from the assessment is that the evolution of water resources planning in the Fraser River basin has paralleled that of water resources planning in the literature as it pertains to the acceptance of the principles of water resources planning. The thesis concludes by offering insights into what seemed to work and what did not work in incorporating the principles into water resources planning and management in the Fraser River basin.
