Abstract

A methodology - the opportunity loss (OL) model - is proposed for estimating the value of streamflow data in surface water pollution control. It is argued that the methodology is feasible, but for it to be applicable in practice, more research is needed on the derivation of benefit functions for water quality improvement.
