The purpose of this volume is to document the cost estimates for a comprehensive set of proposed water management infrastructure tactics. Several concepts of how the costs of infrastructure tactics were selected and used in PAWN and the justifications for them are presented in Chap. 2. There are a few important cost estimating relationships that are used repeatedly. Most of these were developed by the authors and are discussed fully in Chap. 3. Chapters 4 through 10 present the individual tactic cost estimates by analysis region. Each of these chapters begins with a description of the region and the water management problem. A brief discussion of the key cost estimating assumptions and methods used is also presented with each tactic. The specific tactic cost estimates used in PAWN analyses are presented in the appendix.
