Considered is the use of educational techniques to encourage wider and more informed participation in the public aspects of water resources. This report grows out of experimental educational work at the Cornell University Water Resources and Marine Sciences Center between July 1969 and June 1971, discloses objectives, procedures, and details of this research, and consolidates some experience and analysis in the use of such techniques for improving planning and development processes in the water resources field. The Cornell Project stressed the exploration of methods, principles, roles and opportunities for the participation of universities in providing educational inputs into public involvement in water resources planning and development. Alternative techniques were evaluated and a variety of activities were undertaken in a variety of settings; in every case, comprehensive basin planning was actively being pursued under either state or federal leadership.
