The proceedings include an overview chapter, description of alternative approaches from the detailed 'systems estimate' to the more general approach of 'parametric estimating'. Other topics include verification of estimating models, spatial cost estimating, estimating for small systems and large regional studies, and a method for estimating surface water intake costs.
