This paper identifies how the analytical frameworks of the principal URRI participating agencies (U.S. Army Corps of Engineers and EPA) can be integrated to serve the goals of the URRI in ways that highlight incremental effects on costs and benefits from choosing among alternative plans and presented in a manner enabling collaborators to compare the benefits from different combinations and permutations of all the potential measures for given budgets. The conclusion discusses the contribution of the integrated planning framework to building consensus among federal agencies, nonfederal agencies, and other stakeholders on a URRI implementation plan.
