Sacramento Suburban Water District ASR Well Economic Assessment

People Cortney Brand, Gary Gin,

Sacramento Suburban Water District is exploring development of an ASR well system within its service area, and wanted to understand the associated costs, benefits, and risks. LRE Water created a decision support tool that evaluates the life-cycle costs of two ASR well development scenarios: retrofit existing inactive wells vs. install new ASR wells. The economic model calculates the capital and O&M costs of developing and operating an ASR well system compared to the revenue that could be generated from selling recovered water supplies over a range of volumes and unit prices.
