provide park managers and NPS partners with information about the 
values U.S. residents place on the Grand Canyon of the Colorado River 
riparian resource, and on alternative flow release scenarios from Glen 
Canyon Dam designed to protect canyon flora and fauna. The final survey 
will provide information for the economic analysis of the alternative 
management and operation protocols for Glen Canyon Dam. The economic 
analysis provides one piece of information that the Secretary of the 
Interior will use to evaluate future dam operation plans associated 
with the current ongoing Glen Canyon DEIS. This notice will cover the 
development and pretesting of the final survey instrument.
