TR 11 - Federal Water Recreation in Colorado: Comprehensive View and Analysis, K.E. Stefanec, May 1978

The conflict with which this paper is concerned and analytically seeks to expose is a policy problem. The author's treatment of this conflict is grounded in the belief that policy and policy problems are the result of and thus conditioned by a complex change of historical social-political-physical events (i.e. antecedent policies and policy problems). With respect to the Federal-state conflict under study, the policy problem directly relates to Colorado's financial/ administrative/political ability (and willingness) to comply with Federal water resource policy as it stands today regarding fish and wildlife and recreation enhancement at Federally constructed reservoirs.
