Established in the 1965 Water Resources Planning Act, the WRC’s principal duties are to (1) assess the adequacy of regional and national water supplies; (2) study regional or river basin plans and programs in relation to larger national regions; (3) assess the adequacy of administrative and statutory means for the coordination of water and related land resources policies and programs of federal agencies; (4) appraise the adequacy of existing and proposed policies and programs to meet these requirements; and (5) make recommendations to the president with respect to federal policies and programs.

Another relevant trend is that stakeholder groups today request a greater voice in decision making than in the past. Interest groups and citizens alike are today also less likely to trust the Corps’ professional judgment and analyses than in the past. Corps of Engineers planning studies today often attract much interest and may be carefully scrutinized. The Corps is aware of this and typically hosts public meetings and other events to solicit public input on the agency’s highly visible planning studies.
