Abstracts of the presentations given on Tuesday, 24 July 2007, in Session 7 of the UCOWR Conference.


Land rental costs associated with a proposed large-scale and dispersed floodwater storage project in the Red River Basin (RRB) of North Dakota and Minnesota are estimated through: GIS-based spatial overlays of township cropland rental values with optimal floodwater storage locations, surveys of RRB landowners used to elicit their assessments of storage impacts and their required compensation levels, and, observed compensation rates paid to landowners in a separate but nearby floodwater storage project in Devils Lake, North Dakota.
