Kara J. Fishman, Robert L. Leonard and Farhed Shah

No 21568, 1999 Annual meeting, August 8-11, Nashville, TN from American Agricultural Economics Association (New Name 2008: Agricultural and Applied Economics Association)

Abstract: A survey based approach is proposed to augment the property value method when historical information on water quality variation is unavailable. Data from three Connecticut lakes is used to illustrate this approach. The impact of hypothetical water quality changes on recreational and aesthetic values is assessed and analyzed.
