Abstract: From the time of George Washington the American political system has struggled over whether management and administration of natural resources should be made at the national level, or at the state, regional, or local level. A graduate seminar at Cornell University in 1996 shows that centralized federal effort to plan for water and resources have not succeeded, but the benefits of comprehensive planning and management can be successfully merged into the 'real world' of federal decision making without major changes.
