Abstract:

Feasibility analysis often requires estimates of potential monetary returns and economic benefits proposed projects will generate. In 1981 a study was conducted to provide demand data that could be used to make such estimates for a marina feasibility study at a Corps of Engineers lake in the Midwest. The study employed self-administered contingent valuation methods CVM to estimate consumer willingness to pay to rent mooring facilities. Because such methods have potential for application to many similar problems on Corps projects, this report was prepared explaining the self-administered CVM approach using the previous study as an example.
