This report is the second of a two-part research study. The first report involved an extensive review of previous research pertaining to secondary effects of highways, mass transit, wastewater collection and treatment systems, and of land use models which might be utilized to project secondary environmental effects. The report is published under the title: "Secondary Impacts of Transportation and Wastewater Investments: Review and Bibliography," (EPA No. 600/5-75-002, January, 1974). The second report presents, in this publication, the results of original research on the extent to which secondary development can be attributed to highways and wastewater treatment and collection systems, and conditions under which causal relations appear to exist. Case studies of recent development trends were made in four metropolitan regions: Boston, Massachusetts, Denver, Colorado, Washington, D.C., and Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota. Data for the four metropolitan regions were analyzed using econometric techniques and simulation modeling. The data tape (TMP 243) is stored with Optimum Systems Incorporated, Washington, D.C. This report consists of four sections: an Introduction and Summary of Findings; a technical documentation of case studies and econometric analysis; an evaluation of the Findings and suggestions for Further Research; and Appendices summarizing the dynamic model, its application, and documentation. /FPA/
