A Guide for Multiple Use Waterway Management
A Guide for Multiple Use Waterway Management is but one tool for resource managers, planners, regulators and other waterway stakeholders and professionals who are trying to make sense of an evolving body of information about multiple use waterway issues and conflicts and site-appropriate ways for coming to terms with them. This body of information, which grounds the analysis and presentations within the Guide, is made up of research reports, management plans, process summaries, academic and governmental studies, conference and workshop proceedings, meeting minutes, media articles, and Internet-based sites produced or maintained by public, private and non-profit agencies and organizations.
But the "making sense" part of this project would not have been as rich and multi-layered if it had not been for the active engagement and guidance of individuals and organizational representatives in formal and informal project input and feedback opportunities in 2002 and 2003. They helped to shape this edition by sharing their real-life professional experiences and their varying and valuable perspectives on waterway and multiple use issues and management priorities and approaches. The National Water Safety Congress (NWSC) and the National Association of State Boating Law Administrators (NASBLA) thank all of the boating and water safety specialists, waterway managers and planners, academic and government researchers, and other professionals representing recreational, commercial, industrial, environmental and military arenas and interests for providing a wealth of expertise, insights and reference materials.Click here to download the Second Edition of the Guide
