By the end of fiscal year 1979, the Clean Lakes Program had approved 105 grants for over 40 million dollars--23 for state classification surveys and 82 for study and restoration work at specific lakes. Benefits were assessed for a 28-project sample drawn from the second group. The 28 projects, involving $15 million+ in Federal funds and an approximately equal sum from state and local agencies, are producing benefits in twelve categories: recreation, aesthetics, flood control, economic development, fish and wildlife, agriculture, property value, public health, and miscellaneous items. Many benefits could not be measured in monetary terms, but the present value of those which could is $127,448,500. This represents a return of $8.30 per Federal dollar expended, or $4.15 per total project dollar.
