The monitoring and testing that go along with this characterization must focus on both constituents of con- cern to human health and those that affect operations of the water systems. Whether you know it as a cost-benefit analysis or a benefit-cost analysis, performing one is critical to any project. When you perform a cost-benefit analysis, you make a comparative assessment of all the benefits you anticipate from your project and all the costs to introduce the project, perform it, and support the changes resulting from it.

    The purpose of water storage tanks is usually to meet peak demands, such as fire flows and times of the day when water use is high.

Economic appraisal, hereafter referred to simply as 'appraisal', is about getting a good deal from public expenditure.
