Description: The research design for the Newlands Project in the area of Fallon, Nevada, intends for Reclamation to take an all-around look at a functioning Reclamation project within a community. This project was chosen because it is a small project with a wide diversity of issues -- including legal, water rights, environmental, Native American water rights, and even groundwater issues. This research design will not be repeated for other projects. Reclamation employees, politicians, water users, Indians from two bands of Paiutes, environmentalists, Fish and Wildlife Service employees, and many other categories of interviewees will provide a pool of 75 to 150 people who will give Reclamation a broad perspective on what its project means to the area.
