Title:Water Transmission Costs
Author(s):Ackerman, William C.
Subject(s):Water resources development
Water transmission lines
Construction cost estimates
Geographic Coverage:Illinois
Abstract:This technical letter concerns the cost of water transmission lines, and represents one product of research on the cost of water resources development currently under way at the Ill inois State Water Survey. Parallel studies are going forward on the cost of reservoirs, water treatment plants, and wells. Use of this material will give an estimate of cost for transmission line projects of a given size, as well as the degree of uncertainty to be considered. This is intended only as an instrument for establishing orders of magnitude as a basis for comparisons, and of course, does not substitute for engineering studies. This study is based on information from installations in Illinois. The data were obtained from the owner of the line (municipal or private water supply) or a consulting engineer. All cost figures were brought to the 1964 cost level by means of the Handy-Whitman index (Handy-Whitman Index of Water Utility Construction Costs; Whitman, Requardt and Associates, Baltimore, Maryland; Bulletin 20, 1966). The search for information on cost of transmission lines is being continued, and the data will be gathered as they become available. This will ensure a continuous revision and substantiation of the results presented here.
