A River in the Balance: Benefits and Costs of Restoring Natural Water Flows to the Eel River

This report examines the several components of benefits and costs of restoring natural water flows to the Eel River. The supplemental report published in 2004, Economic Benefits to Mendocino and Lake Counties from Removing the Dams on the Eel River, focuses on the benefits of physically removing the Potter Valley Project dams, restoring the affected watershed, and increasing nature-based tourism.
