Using Cost-Benefit Analyses to Compare Drought Management Practices

Utilities need reliable data on the potential impacts of drought, its costs, and the impacts and costs of alternative mitigation strategies. This Webcast will cover the results of project #4546, “Drought Management Under a Changing Climate: Using Cost-Benefit Analyses to Assist Drinking Water Utilities.” The research reviewed how a cost-benefit analysis may be used in drought planning and the issues and challenges that drinking water utilities face in implementing drought management practices, including an example cost-benefit analysis for a hypothetical utility. This project was funded under the NOAA Climate Program Office, Sectoral Applications Research Program (SARP): Coping with Drought with the National Integrated Drought Information System (NIDIS).
