The sequence of events and the system that produced a U.S. Army Corps of Engineers navigation project report are examined. Its orientation is that of seeking rather than solving problems, though some tentative conclusions and suggestions for change are offered. Specific reference is made to a waterway on the eastern shore of the Delmarva Peninsula in Delaware, Maryland, and Virginia. The method used to carry out the study involves three related procedures: interviews with principals and local people; maintenance of correspondence and memoranda files, and analyzing the data obtained.
