In our annual budget forecast survey, we asked readers two main questions: what they see as their greatest challenge in 2008, and how they plan to address that challenge. Because the EPA drives so much of what the typical PUBLIC WORKS reader does, we sorted responses according to the agency's 10 regions of the country. That, and basic demographic information, will help you put respondents' insightful answers into context.
