Abstract

In order to determine the suitable diameter of a sewage pipe, it is necessary to know the increasing demand for the piping, the cost of capital (interest rate), and the cost function of the pipe. This article aims to evaluate, using statistics, the cost function for sewage pipes. We achieve this by analyzing the information on construction costs for integrated sewer systems by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency during the period of 1973-1977.
