Abstract
The monograph is an attempt to show how city planners can use historical, social and political material to make the water resources of a river more effective. This first chapter is a subjective view of the Charles River in Massachusetts as the author sees it. A survey is given of Charles River in terms of flood drainage, navigation, drinking water, industry, waste disposal, recreation, and aesthetic purposes. Using the methods of social science described in the monograph, planners may gauge which aspects of their resource plans are socially acceptable and how they might implement those parts of the plan by using local support.
