Conflicts often result because of varying goals among water resources users. A management control system is necessary to bring users together. Selected elements of an organizational and management concepts classification system developed for use in examining management problems of Chesapeake Bay are described. The model yields a framework to classify social, political and economic entities found in the area. Discussion centers primarily on user responsibilities, system responsibilities and integration as signs of the system's effectiveness. It includes changing attitudes, maintaining linkages, and dividing tasks among users according to their own expertise.
