Abstract
The present status of water resources management in Puerto Rico is reviewed. Topics discussed include the island's hydrology, streamflow, water availability, water use, water rights, predictions of future needs, water problems, and recommendations. The major problems are pollution control, reservoir sedimentation, flood control, irrigation needs, drainage, and salt water intrusion. Puerto Rico is rapidly industrializing and must solve these problems to continue increasing the standard of living. (USGS abstract)
