The proposed location of the Corps of Engineers Platte River Dam was analyzed from the standpoint of its environmental impact. A technique was developed which offers an objective approach to environmental analysis of water resources projects and an alternative to the more subjective cost-benefit ratio. The philosophy behind the method is founded on statements of relative truth while the actual technique is based on the probabilities of occurrence of resources and the desires or demands for the resources. The application of the method to this dam covered such categories as agriculture, recreation, bird habitat, mammal habitat and fish habitat.
