Abstract or Summary
  • Increasing demand for exploitation of natural resources in federal-municipal watersheds in the Western United States has caused conflicts involving municipalities, the U.S. Forest Service, and community interest groups. Better understanding of the resource management process is needed to help resolve these conflicts. The objectives of this study were to document and analyze how attitudes, interest group activities, and applicable research affected federal-municipal management relationships in the Bull Run Watershed from 1890-1989. A descriptive model of decision-making in natural resource conflicts was also developed to provide a framework for future research. A combination of historical and applied methodology was used in the case study. Archival searches, quantitative and qualitative content analysis, public meeting observation, and interviews were used in gathering data. Conclusions were that attitudes played a major role in the evolution of management relationships in Bull Run, interest groups provided incentive to institutionalize federal-municipal relationships, and research on timber harvest and water quality in Bull Run is not conclusive and has been used by interest groups to support opposing positions. The decision model illustrated how these three factors are related in resource decision-making.
