Conserv begins testing Green/Grey Infrastructure Expenditure Optimization Tool for F2F Initiative
Conserv, in association with The Center for Sustainable Groundwater, has completed a beta-version of a capital expenditure planning tool for water supply utilities and local governments. The tool, called the Optimal Infrastructure Expenditure (OIE) Capital Planner,allows the user to optimize expenditures for green infrastructure (afforestation and forest conservation easements) and for grey infrastructure (dredging).
The OIE Project is a part of the Forests to Faucets (F2F) program funded by The Virginia Department of Forestry and The U.S. Endowment for Forestry and Communities, Inc..
