The decision tree concept of decision analysis theory can be easily adapted to the water and wastewater industry in making spending decisions for rehabilitation programs, renewal and replacement programs, and capital improvement programs where costs are a significant consideration and uncertainty exists as to the degree of success of the alternatives considered.
