Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Water Policy and Management: Solving the Problems


Development of partnerships and active public involvement programs has, in the past, been de-emphasized for the more traditional Corps studies. However, as the Corps continues to progress toward more multi-objective and broadly focussed studies, public involvement programs and partnerships are becoming a more important part of study efforts. The partnerships developed and the active public involvement program undertaken as a part of the Lackawanna River Corridor Greenway Study is in large part responsible for the success of this unique study.
