This report is the sixth in a series of nine supplementary reports which provide supporting Information for the National Rivers Authority Water Resources Development Strategy document: "An Environmentally Sustainable Water Resources Development Strategy for England and Wales". This report describes the methodology and results of a review of capital and operating costs for a variety of individual schemes under consideration for development within the National Water Resources Strategy. The objective of the review is to ensure that a consistent set of scheme costs is produced for input to the RESPLAN modelling work. RESPLAN will be used to help to identify, according to present value (PV) cost, alternative scheme combinations, or strategies, to respond to forecast water supply deficits in England and Wales. The results from RESPLAN form an important part of the information required for the formulation of an environmentally sustainable strategy, and the quality of the input information needs to be assured. The review has focused upon ensuring cost estimates are related to a common base date, as well as being prepared to a consistent methodology. As can be seen from Table 1, some cost estimates relate to scheme studies carried out many years ago.
