Protecting water quality is essential to preserve the many beneficial uses of western water resources. This conference, “Water Quality Control: Integrating Beneficial Use and Environmental Protection,” addresses the dominant federal requirements in the Clean Water Act, including the important major revisions enacted by Congress in 1987, with special attention to western problems regarding nonpoint source pollution. Developments in groundwater quality regulation are considered, as are selected issues concerning the implications of state and federal water quality regulation for the traditional exercise of water rights.
