Economic Analysis of Reservoir Sedimentation

Project ID: 8109
Principal Investigator: Todd Gaston
Research Topic: Sediment Management and River Restoration
Funded Fiscal Years: 2018
Keywords: None

Research Question

What economic methodologies and literature are applicable to the quantification of the costs and benefits of reservoir sediment management?

Need and Benefit

There is a dearth of research surrounding the methods to assess the costs and benefits of long-term sediment management for Reclamation reservoirs. A framework for quantifying these costs and benefits will contribute to prudent decision-making regarding reservoir maintenance, lifespan, and decommissioning.
