Water resource management is the activity of planning, developing, distributing and managing the optimum use of water is a sub-set of water cycle is very essential for our survival. The field of water resources management will have to continue to adapt to the current and future issues facing the allocation of water.

These growing complexities necessitate a systems engineering approach to project planning. A systems engineering approach to water resources planning involves a holistic view spatially, temporally, and across disciplines, which fundamentally changes the dynamics of planning.

Approaches to Water Planning This section reviews six major approaches for water planning, most of which are variations on rational planning. Each approach addresses technical aspects of water problems.

Integrated Water Resource Management NASA/JPL, Flickr (CC BY ) Integrated Water Resource Management (IWRM), also known as One Water, is an approach to managing water that looks holistically at the planning and management of water supply, wastewater. water resources at all levels.

GWP was created in to foster integrated water resources management (IWRM), and to ensure the co-ordinated development and management of water, land and related resources. This paper attempts to summarize and organize various technical approaches often seen or discussed for water resources planning.

The basic approach to rational planning is presented, followed by brief reviews of Requirements-based, Benefit-Cost-based, Multi-objective, Conflict Resolution, Market-based, and Muddling Through approaches to planning.

Water resource systems are complex and their management can be confusing for both technical and policy participants. Such confusion can be reduced with the development and application of a planning approach.

This paper attempts to summarize and organize various technical approaches to water resources planning. Managing water effectively means reconciling the often conflicting goals of conservation, irrigation, drainage, supply, flood control, hydropower, waste, recreation, and other needs.

Water Resources 3/5(1). Utility planning can be characterized by four general approaches: traditional supply planning, least-cost utility planning, integrated resource planning, and total water management.
