Abstract: The Missouri River basin recently (1987-1992) experienced a drought that affected project uses and environmental resources. This drought and the need to address changes that have occurred in the Missouri River basin prompted a review of the Missouri River Master Water Control Manual (Master Manual). The goal of the Master Manual review is to determine the water control plan for the Missouri River Mainstem System that best meets the contemporary needs of the basin. To accomplish that goal, alternative water control plans, including the current water control plan, needed to be evaluated to determine their potential economic and environmental effects. This paper describes the Economic Impacts Model, which was developed to compute the economic effects.
