Abstract : Extensive investigations into the feasibility of numerous possible multipurpose project configurations and sites were conducted during this study. Detailed analyses of the modified plan for the original Dalton Lake site, and the reformulated plan for the Mitchell Bridge site, were both performed using data and evaluation methodologies which strongly favored economic feasibility. All economic evaluations of the considered multipurpose plans resulted in benefit-to-cost ratios far below unity (costs exceeded National Economic Developmental benefits). The results of analyses performed for the three major plans considered are shown in Table 24. In addition to the lack of economic feasibility demonstrated by these multipurpose plans, it is pertinent to point out that each would also result in significant adverse environmental impacts.
