These curves are excellent for purposes of comparison; however, it is recommended that construction and maintenance budgets should be based on site specific information. Utilizing the table below and the cost estimation worksheet, will allow designers to more accurately estimate the cost of a filtration BMP.
Cost components for filtration practices.
