Abstract:

The overall objective of this manual is to outline a methodology which can be used to assess economic development impacts which may be generated from water development projects such as the construction and operation of waterways, recreational facilities, ports, and water impoundments. The methodology uses linear programming to estimate industrial output with and without a water resources project. The LP model estimates the impact of lowered production costs, which result from a project. Economic base modeling is used to generate estimates of the indirect impacts on industries which are affected by the increases of output in the directly affected industries. Author
