This paper describes methods for comparative evaluation of alternative rehabilitation measures for aging small-scale hydroelectric power plants located on storage reservoirs. The evaluation criteria include both dollar-denominated and non-dollar denominated impacts associated with different rehabilitation options. The comparative evaluation is performed using a combination of the delphi and fuzzy-set approaches. The evaluation procedure is illustrated using options to rehabilitate a damaged hydroelectric power plant as an example.
