Economic and Natural Resource Benefits of CEPRA Cycle 5-6 Projects

Summary

The CEPRA statute requires the Land Commissioner to evaluate the natural resource and economic benefits of CEPRA projects and report these measured benefits to the Texas Legislature for each biennium that the Legislature provides CEPRA project funding. This project will quantify economic benefits associated with representative CEPRA Cycle 5 and Cycle 6 construction projects, including calculation of storm damage reduction benefits and will provide an evaluation of natural resource improvement associated with habitat restoration and projection projects using established methodologies. The deliverable will be a report of findings suitable for inclusion as an appendix to the GLO's CEPRA report to the 82nd Texas Legislature.
