OIE Beta Testing Moves to Local Government Evaluation

Next week, local government staff in the City of Charlottesville and Albemarle County, Virginia will begin evaluation of the Optimum Infrastructure Expenditure (OIE) Capital Planning Tool. Two versions of the tool will be evaluated; case studies of the South Fork Rivanna River Reservoir Watershed, and a hypothetical watershed with low legacy sediment. ┬áResults of the testing will be used to modify the tool before it’s next destination: testing by local government and utility policy-makers in Central Virginia.

The OIE is a project of the South Fork Rivanna River Forests to Faucets (F2F) Initiative funded by the U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, Inc. and the Virginia Department of Forestry. Sub-contractors assisting with the project include the Center for Sustainable Groundwater and Civil and Environmental Services, LLC.
