Across the Nation, many communities are addressing stormwater management needs and assessing requirements for implementing management plans. Some considerations during this process include costs associated with aging water infrastructure conveyance systems, the addition of green infrastructure controls, rate payer expectations, and other considerations important to the community.
This webinar will feature the new web-based Community-enabled Lifecycle Analysis of Stormwater Infrastructure Costs (CLASIC) tool. The GIS-interfaced CLASIC tool utilizes a life cycle cost framework to support feasibility and planning of stormwater infrastructure at a municipality or watershed scale. Through a summary of case studies spanning all climate regions in the U.S., the presenters will demonstrate how the CLASIC tool can help stormwater professionals, community planners, and local decision makers understand and weigh the estimated costs, reductions in runoff and pollutant loads, and co-benefits of various planning scenarios as they consider stormwater management projects, including under future climate scenarios.
