Environmental economics: towards a national standard for stormwater treatment?

Benefits derived from lowered environmental impacts are not assigned an economic value as are congestion and crash reductions. Consequently, environmental and social mitigation is seen as a financial burden adding cost while adversely affecting the benefit-cost-ratio (BCR). Domestic and overseas research has had little effect on valuation methodologies in BCR funding allocations. It is the intent of this paper to demonstrate a value-for-money approach to environmental and social impact mitigation using storm water treatment case studies.
