Based on more than 80 years of the authors' collective experience, the book not only enables readers to arrive at a dependable estimate, it shows readers how to do it quickly with a minimum of information and supporting data. In order to ensure reliability, the authors have compiled and analyzed the results from their own construction cost estimates for more than 500 projects as well as the results from many other engineers and contractors. The book identifies 43 treatment processes, nine types of water treatment plants and five additional types of advanced water treatment plants. The book then demonstrate how to calculate costs for each element, accounting for needed mark-ups and allowances in order to arrive at the total plant construction cost. Includes:
- Examples of cost estimates for different water treatment processes
- Historical data from several public agencies
- Sample tables for 10 mgd and 100 mgd product water flow rates for each type of treatment plant
