Community-enabled Lifecycle Analysis of Stormwater Infrastructure Costs (CLASIC)

Recently, federal policies seek innovative solutions for wet weather control (such as green infrastructure) that can confer multiple environmental, social and economic benefits. The Water Environment & Reuse Foundation (WE&RF) is leading a project intended to provide communities with a tool that takes into account the costs associated with planning, designing, acquiring, constructing,  operating, maintaining, renewing, and replacing stormwater infrastructure. The results are expected to increase confidence in comparing benefits and costs of stormwater infrastructure alternatives using tools based on cost, design, and performance data sets and a peer-reviewed model.
