Benefit-cost analyses of the proposed U. S. Bureau of Reclamation Lake Andes-Wagner Project have shown the project to be marginally feasible. In an effort to improve the benefit-cost ratio, two studies investigated the impact of downsizing the project. The first study reviewed the method used by the Bureau to estimate the irrigation water requirements for sizing the project. The second study evaluated the change in benefits from reducing irrigation water deliveries.
