An Economic Framework for Evaluating Benefits and Costs of Water Reuse
Robert S. Raucher, Ph.D., Stratus Consulting Inc.
This research report develops an economic framework that is a tool to help water agencies and other water sector professionals conduct a benefit–cost analysis (BCA) of reuse or desalination investments. The economic framework is designed to help water managers (1) identify, (2) estimate (to the degree feasible and meaningful), and (3) effectively communicate the full range of benefits associated with water reuse projects or related activities. This report supplies templates (and a computerized spreadsheet version on CD-ROM) to help guide users through the exercise. Illustrative examples also are provided for several water reuse projects.
