Experts from around the world share their unique perspectives on tackling the important and pressing problems facing watershed management today. The more than 240 papers contained in this proceedings were presented at the 2005 Watershed Management Conference held in Williamsburg, VA, July 19-22, 2005. Special topics included: Dam Removal - numerous case studies of specific dam removal projects are presented along with more general presentations of changes to sediment and channel dynamics upstream and downstream of the removed dams; and Decision Support - computational tools aimed at helping guide operational and management decisions within watersheds are presented. Tools for making cost-effective ecosystem services decisions and drought management decisions, and tools specifically designed for management of the Colorado River and the Truckee River basins are presented. The topics include: Chesapeake Bay - many different studies and watershed management efforts have been performed to better understand the delicate ecology of the Bay and how best to protect it - papers focus on such varied issues as wetland restoration, sediment transport, BMPs, Smart Growth, and real-time watershed surveillance in the Chesapeake Bay Watershed; Fire - papers examine the impacts of fires on sediment transport, pollutant transport, and changes in flood potential; and River Restoration - papers examine river restoration through case studies, analysis of regional behavior, and study of both in-stream and adjacent riparian conditions. Reflecting the inter-disciplinary nature of the conference, these proceedings papers will be of interest to all professional with a critical stake in engineers, hydrologists, biologists, ecologists, economists, attorneys, public officials, and governmental planners.
