Economic & Life Cycle Cost Analysis

As directed by the 2017 Legislature’s passage of NDCC 61-03-21.4, the State Water Commission will require cost-share applications for municipal water supply projects to include LCCA results for agency review. Similarly, cost-share applications for flood control or water conveyance projects with a total cost of one million dollars or more, must include a completed EA, with model results, for agency review. This requirement applies to projects receiving cost-share funding after June 30, 2019. Guidance and electronic fillable models to conduct these analyses may be accessed on the EA web page and LCCA web page.
