Abstract

Since the Flood Control Act of 1936, academic economists, federal agency staffs, and various special commissions have tried to improve benefit-cost procedures used in evaluation investments for water resource projects. Over the years, guidelines for conduction benefit-cost evaluation have become more sophisticated, with current federal practice guided by the Water Resources Council's "Principles and Standards for Planning Water and Related Land Resources."
