Willingness to payment method, water resource value evaluation and income loss assessment have been chosen to evaluated the standard of ecological compensation. The gross amount of eco-compensation payment is 129240.8 thousand yuan according to WTP method. As to the water resource value evaluation, the result of which is 61904 thousand yuan. Income loss assessment reaches a total eco-compensation amount of 58390 thousand yuan. Comparing with the three results, we think the result of WTP can be regarded as the standard for tourists by introducing ticket price. To carry out ecological compensation, different evaluation systems and special policy must be worked out to protect the enthusiasm of local government and residents for water protection.
