The web-based “Community‐enabled Lifecycle Analysis of Stormwater Infrastructure Costs” (CLASIC) tool is intended to support stormwater infrastructure planning and decisions using lifecycle costs to compare green, hybrid green‐gray, and gray infrastructure practices. There are three main components to the CLASIC tool outputs: (1) life cycle costs; (2) assessed value of co‐benefits (environmental, social, financial); and (3) performance. This webcast presents a rigorous framework of life cycle cost analysis for green and gray infrastructure, along with a live demo of CLASIC tool features and user interface. In addition, the webcast provides an overview of beta testing process for community engagement.
