Authors: Carson, William D.

Recreational use
Publisher: Hydrologic Engineering Center (U.S.)
Abstract: This research report summarizes the results of an analysis of recreation use data from five reservoirs in the Little Rock District of the U. s. Army Corps of Engineers. The purposes of the study were: first, to determine the effects of certain reservoir operating characteristics on the volume of recreation use and benefits; and, second, to relate these results to more conventional analysis of recreation use based mainly on socioeconomic variables. In addition, the study suggests ways that the analysis of recreation use can be applied to benefit estimation for proposed projects.
