The following collection content description is paraphrased from the report:

The idea of creating a water-oriented amenity for Dallas has been proposed and studied several times by private entities in the past, but this time is the first that the city commissioned a study.   The purpose of the study was to provide the City of Dallas with a variety of ideas and options for the development of a water-oriented linear amenity in the Farmer's Market area.  The study presents the benefits, drawbacks, and costs associated with a Linear Waterway, such as exists in San Antonio, Texas, through the analysis of several alternatives in both form and function. The alternatives are studied in terms of their impacts on existing and future infrastructure and development and are intended to provide the City with the information to decide upon a fiscally sound course of action regarding the design, construction, operation, and maintenance of a Linear Waterway.
