A project was initiated at the University of Florida to estimate the value of water in alternative uses and to determine the optimum allocation among the alternative uses. Basically, the study was designed to develop and test two types of water allocation models: linear programming and simulation. In order to allocate water efficiently, values of alternative uses must be estimated. It is the purpose of this report to: (1) present the procedures used to derive estimates of economic value, and (2) derive the economic value of 'water oriented' outdoor recreation in the Kissimmee River Basin.
