Every Dollar Counts: Calculating Sewer System Life Cycle Costs


Sponsored by: Environment One Corporation

Pressure sewer systems have emerged over the last several decades as the low-cost, low-impact alternative to conventional gravity sewers. But exactly how much are we talking? What are the life cycle costs of a pressure sewer compared to a gravity sewer?

Join us for a free educational webinar providing a holistic overview of life-cycle cost analysis and the cost advantages of pressure sewer systems.

Specifically this online training webinar will compare low-pressure sewer systems to new construction of gravity sewers or renewal/rehabilitation of failed gravity sewers in terms of construction costs, community impacts (social costs), environmental footprint, and landscape disturbance. Within this examination, we’ll discuss why and how the true cost of long-term ownership of wastewater collection system alternatives is often improperly evaluated. We’ll then take a look at evaluation tools such as life-cycle cost calculators that provide a planning level assessment of the long-term life cycle costs between a low pressure sewer system and a conventional gravity sewer. Finally, we’ll wrap up by discussing how life-cycle cost calculators allow you to adjust both cost and operational parameters based on specific project needs. Capturing all operational activities and basing costs on actual or historical data ensures a more complete assessment and facilitates the selection of the wastewater collection system with the most favorable life cycle costs.

Learning Objectives
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives:

  • Identify the advantages of pressure sewer systems.
  • Analyze life cycle cost comparisons of pressure sewer systems and other sewer alternatives.
  • Understand the importance of having a standardized approach to evaluating the economic favorability of alternatives for wastewater collection projects.
  • Understand the principles and components of a life-cycle cost analysis.
  • Understand the benefits of conducting a life-cycle cost analysis for infrastructure evaluations.
  • Gain an understanding of the total cost of ownership for sewer systems.
