National Archives and Records Services (GSA), Washington, DC. Office of the Federal Register.
Presented in this notice of a public review and hearing are the proposed Principles and Standards for planning water and related land resources of the United States. Developed by the Water Resources Council pursuant to the Water Resources Planning Act of 1965 (Public Law 89-80), the purpose is to achieve objectives, determined cooperatively, through the coordinated actions of the Federal, State, and local governments, private enterprise and organizations, and individuals. Plans for the use of the Nation's water and land resources would be directed toward improvement of the quality of life through contributions to the objectives of national economic development, environmental quality, and regional development. Beneficial and adverse effects of alternative plans on each of these objectives, as well as effects on social factors, are also considered. It is concluded that promulgation of the proposed Principles and Standards would further the purposes of the National Environmental Policy Act of 1969. (BL)
