This Appendix presents the examination and analysis of the physical possibilities for improvement or development of the water and related land resources in the White River Basin to meet forecased needs and objectives. The needs are defined as the short- and long-term demand for water supply for municipal, industrial, rural, domestic, and agricultural use water quality control flood control and prevention watershed protection which includes land treatment and land management drainage navigation, hydroelectric power forest and mineral production outdoor recreation including preservation of historical and scientific values and conservation and enhancement of fish and wildlife. The advantages and disadvantages of the various physical alternatives were evaluated and when data were available a comparison of excess benefits over costs was made for the alternatives. However, in many cases the inclusion of a project or program in the comprehensive plan was determined by other factors. Because of the possible changes in the long-range projected needs and the appropriate project or program to meet them, alternative solutions are included in some instances. These alternatives are discussed in this Appendix. Author
