Lifecycle Analysis of Stormwater Infrastructure

The CLASIC Center is generating a tool that evaluates the costs associated with planning, designing, acquiring, constructing, operating, maintaining, renewing, and replacing stormwater infrastructure.

The Community-enabled Lifecycle Analysis of Stormwater Infrastructure Center (CLASIC) tool is 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.  The OWSI team is responsible for the development and deployment of the tool on the eRAMS Platform and is working with a team of experts from several institutions and organizations to develop a robust and effective tool.
