Six key phases are identified for the integrated process of planning and evaluation of multiple purpose, multiobjective water resource systems: Need identification, formulation of alternative systems, assessment of impacts, evaluation, display and implementation. Within the process, three major problem areas which contribute significantly to the complexity of the process are identified, analyzed and illuminated through the use of carefully selected case studies. The case studies currently in the planning stage are used to demonstrate three practical planning tools: comparative analysis of alternative land use plans used to delineate economic and social impacts of different land uses and analyze their implications for water resource planning; tradeoff analysis used to assess the importance of benefit tradeoffs between flood control and urban recreation; sensitivity analysis usedto determine necessary changes in the design and operation of a system designed primarily for water supply in order to better accomodate other purposes. Finally, a stepwise procedure for planners is given, together with an outline of priority research areas.
