This report describes a two-stage approach to estimating the value the public places on large-scale sediment remediation projects and comparing that value to the estimated costs of the projects. The authors describe their approach via a case study of the proposed cleanup of the PCB-contaminated Fox River in northeast Wisconsin. The report describes a survey conducted by the lead author, in which Wisconsin citizens were asked what they would be willing to pay to achieve various levels of cleanup.
