Abstract:

The Great Lakes Basin provides a good quality of life through its beautiful scenery, fishing, swimming, power boating, and sailing, as well as through the agricultural, mining, manufacturing, power, and transportation industries. This bibliography presents a review of the literature that was developed as a part of a study conducted by Midwest Research Institute MRI for the Buffalo District U.S. Army Corps of Engineers. The overall objective of the study was to determine the effects proposed water level regulation plans would have on certain Great Lakes beaches, boating facilities, commercial fishing and charter boat operations. In addition to utilizing two national computerized literature services, a number of state, university and local sources were examined. For the purpose of clarification, the various studies, findings, and methodology examined during our search are categorized as follows 1 Marinas and Boating 2 Beaches and Swimming 3 Commercial Fishing and Charter Boating 4 Demand Analysis 5 Cost-Benefit Analysis and 6 Miscellaneous Studies.
