  abstract =     "In past decades, the fundamental notion of employing a
                 multi-disciplinary approach to water resource projects
                 was well received and promoted. According to this
                 approach, water resource practitioners (especially
                 engineers) should change their solution techniques and
                 evaluation so that a solution would encompass a
                 plethora of issues ? both structural and non-structural
                 ? related to the project. It was recognized that
                 solutions could not be based solely on mathematical
                 models of flow conditions. Aspects such as ecology and
                 non-technical issues such as recreational and societal
                 needs should all be considered in the solution
                 derivation process. Undoubtedly, sophisticated
                 technical and mathematical tools (such as artificial
                 neural network and genetic programming, and other tools
                 related to Hydro-informatics) are essential to
                 implement the approach. Added to this is the
                 involvement of various professionals in certain
                 projects. Planners, biologists, limnologists,
                 economists, landscape architects, etc. are some of the
                 other disciplines, besides engineers, involved in
                 dealing with water resource projects. To address the
                 issues, a distinct branch of engineering is imperative.
                 The International Association of Hydraulic Engineering
                 and Research initiated the Eco-hydraulic branch, the
                 American Society of Civil Engineers formed the
                 Environmental Hydraulic Technical Committee and the
                 Canadian Society of Civil Engineers has the
                 Hydrotechnical branch. All in all, these efforts are
                 intended to ensure not only that levels of awareness
                 are elevated but also those levels of engineering
                 practice are adjusted to suit. As a result, solutions
                 would be environmentally friendly and/or sympathetic.",
