Planning for Infrastructure Rehabilitation and Replacementby Robert R. Barbolini, Metropolitan Sanitary District of, Greater Chicago, Chicago, IL, USA,

Abstract: A technique has been developed by the Metropolitan Sanitary District of Greater Chicago (MSDGC) to provide a means of budgeting monetary and human resources needed to provide for infrastructure rehabilitation and replacement on a logical and systematic basis. The technique is based on preparing detailed inventory lists of existing infrastructure, determining the value of that infrastructure, and estimating its useful service life. The latter information is used to estimate the level of annual construction expenditure and related engineering services cost needed to rehabilitate and replace the infrastructure stock. Examples are provided to illustrate the use of the technique to develop actual projects for infrastructure restoration and replacement.
