Abstract:

This Annex contains a description of the public participation process which took place during the Washington Metropolitan Area Water Supply Study, and those who were involved in that process. It presents desires and issues of the various Federal, State, and local agencies, as well as those of the individual citizens. These opinions were received on questionnaires, and through letters and telephone calls. A copy of the April 1974 North Atlantic Division Staff Interim Report is provided as an appendix. It responds directly to a series of questions, concluding that the Washington Metropolitan Area WMA could wait until 1990 for new programs to become operational if the area population were willing to accept the risk of a less than 30-day drought. The interim report also indicates that projects other than upstream reservoirs should be investigated. Author
