Natural and Built Infrastructure Optimization Tools

In 2012, the Center for Natural Capital (formerly Conserv) developed an excel-based tool to optimize yearly capital expenditures for dredging, forest conservation easements, and tree planting contracts – for the purpose of reducing sediment into a water supply reservoir at least cost.

The tool – called the OIE (Optimum Infrastructure Expenditure) Version 2, is now available from the Center. Functionality for the Tool is described in the Forests to Faucets report.

To obtain the tool, contact the Center at 540-661-7379.
