Evaluating benefits and costs of changes in water quality. Gen. Tech. Rep. PNW-GTR Portland, OR: U.S. Department of Agriculture, Forest Service, Pacific Northwest Research Station. 32 p. Water quality affects a variety of uses, such as municipal water consumption and recreation. Changes in water quality can influence the benefits water. The US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has used existing studies to estimate the benefits of environmental improvements associated with several regulatory proposals. The problems encountered in using existing studies to measure the benefits of water quality improvements are investigated. The paper then proposes criteria for selecting transfer studies Cited by:

chapter 5 water demand requirements A fundamental consideration for the sizing of any water system, or its component parts, is an estimate of the amount of water expected to be used by the customers on the system. Develop Estimating Plan: Assemble a cost-estimating team, and outline their approach. Develop a timeline, and determine who will do the independent cost estimate. Finally, create the team’s schedule. Define Characteristics: Create a baseline description of the purpose, system and performance characteristics. This includes any technology.
