Economic Value of River Flows in West River, VT. USA, 2005


An analysis of the economic impacts to the local economy as a result of different river flow regimes in the West River as controlled by the Ball Mountain Dam facility.  The US Army Corps of Engineers operates Ball Mountain Dam and changes the amount of water in the river and therefore the number of days the river can provide a recreational day of boating.  Used REMI Input/Output modeling to determine the direct, indirect and induced economic benefits of various visitation scenarios.  Results show that tourism would generate $15.7 million over ten years for the local economy and create over 50 jobs.
