Item #d96mar80

The Lake Michigan Diversion at Chicago and Urban Drought. Past, Present and Future Regional Impacts and Responses to Global Climate Change. Final Report, S.A. Chagnon, Ed., 221 pp., plus appendices, Nov. 1994. Published by UCAR, POB 3000, Boulder CO 80307.

Assesses the history of the diversion of Lake Michigan waters at Chicago, which began in 1850 and resulted in nine major controversies, some of which were resolved by the U.S. Supreme Court. Lower lake levels during past dry periods and societal responses to them were examined as analogs of current general circulation model predictions of a possible warmer, drier climate in the future. Some of the issues of the past related to: sewage treatment; jurisdiction of Great Lakes waters; economic uses such as shipping and hydropower; adequacy of water supplies; water pollution; competing interests such as shoreline encroachment, recreation, navigation; and international (U.S./Canada) concerns over water scarcity. Recommends identifying urban drought as an urban problem that is exacerbated by wasteful water uses as well as lack of precipitation.


Item #d96mar81

IIASA Options, Summer 1994. Contact Intl. Inst. for Applied Systems Analysis, A-2361 Laxenburg, Austria (tel: 43 2236 71521; fax: 43 2236 71313; e-mail: postmaster@iiasa.ac.at).

Has the theme: water resources in a changing world. Questions of water were not prominent in either the 1987 Brundtland Commission report or the 1992 Earth Summit, yet water may be the environmental problem of the 21st century. Questions of water quality and quantity can no longer be addressed separately; problems must be addressed on the scale of river basins, the natural hydrological unit. Since 1992, IIASA has pursued two themes: water quality management in central and Eastern Europe; and the potential effects of climate change, socioeconomic development and population growth on water resources and society. These are discussed in this issue.

IIASA reports and working papers include:

World Water Resources and Regional Vulnerability: Impact of Future Changes, S.N. Kulshreshtha.

Potential Impacts of Climatic Change on Lake and Reservoir Quality, O. Varis, L. Somlyódy.

Climatic Change Impact on Water Resources: A Systems View, Z. Kundzewicz, L. Somlyódy.
