Abstract : The purpose of this report is to estimate the regional development benefits (RDB's) associated with construction and operation of the Coosa River Navigation Project. Three entirely different methods have been used by contractors to determine RDB's. Since methodologies for evaluating these benefits from navigation projects are not currently developed extensively, this approach was necessary for verification. One method analyzed RDB's in three regions, and did not include the United States, while the other two methods analyzed RDB's in four regions including the total United States.
