Private capture of social benefits created by reservoir construction threatens ability of public agencies to efficiently provide land and facilities to meet projected demands for water-oriented recreation. Objectives of this research are: identify and evaluate factors which explain the location of land transactions, changes in land prices or value, and changes in land use patterns which occur after the authorization of water impoundments; develop and test a model to predict short-term changes in land ownership, land value, and land use; develop a system for monitoring changes in land values, land use, and predictive factors used in the transition model as they occur in reservoir areas; and prepare policy guides to enable the Corps of Engineers and state and local governmental agencies to prevent the exploitation of land in authorized reservoir areas and to facilitate desirable development to meet public land use objectives.
