A report was called for containing a summary of new technical developments, including but not limited to weather modification, evaporation and evapo-transpiration, desalination of saline and brackish waters, seepage control, waste water salvage, and the application of nuclear energy, as these techniques are likely to affect the planning of river basin development and future river management in the United States. The contract called for an evaluation of possible effects of such techniques on the manner of comprehensive river basin planning and on multiple-purpose river management, and for suggestions as to actions that might be taken to hasten or otherwise aid future application of beneficial new technology to comprehensive river development and water conservation. The report furnished under the contract presents a survey of comprehensive, multiple-purpose water development as it is expected to be needed in the future.
