A Hedonic Approach to Estimating Operation and Maintenance Costs for New York Municipal Water Systems
Schmit, Todd M.; Boisvert, Richard N.
A hedonic cost function is used to isolate the O&M costs for water treatments. For small systems, costs are substantial for some technologies, but not for others. Financial burdens may still be substantial for small systems; rural systems have some cost advantage given input costs relative to urban areas.
