I should like to discuss what I consider to be a few major problems Utah faces in connection with water and its development. Time will not permit great detail or breadth of discussion. The points I should like to discuss best can be made by first setting some hydrologic scenery. Actually, although hydrologic considerations provide the central melody to planning for water resources development, there are many socio-politico-legal-economic variations on the theme. My approach will be to remark briefly on thie environment in which today's planning must take place, provide some broad hydrologi guideposts, and with this backdrop select a few problems for comment and discussion.
