A Framework for the Economic Analysis of Ditch System Management Alternatives

A framework for the economic analysis of alternative management plans for public drainage ditch systems is presented. The framework combines enterprise budgeting techniques with a flexible, spatially disaggregated, database framework. The approach is demonstrated with test data for public ditch JD-20 - a tile-based, agricultural drainage system which feeds into the Maple River. Integration of hydrological simulation models is discussed, including approaches to the addressing water quality outcomes.
