For those of you who have been reading this series on a (mostly) weekly basis, I felt it might be useful to explain the recent pause in my weekly blogs.
In my next post (Part 13), I will be making our stormwater trading website available for review. Before posting, however, we are addressing some issues in making the site widely available. We will complete the review and necessary changes during the week of July 13, and the blog associated will be posted likely later that week.
Posts thereafter will focus on Natural Systems Utilities financial analysis of the Site 1 conceptual design, and Industrial Economics economic analysis of Site 1. Those analyses need to be reviewed by our technical advisory committee before we release them for a more general audience.
I intend for the Water Transformation series to continue into September, with reviews of the Site 2 conceptual design and finances and economics. The technical aspects of the series will conclude with an economic analysis of Boston’s centralized system versus a transformation, over time, to a completely distributed system with associated blue/green infrastructure.
That’s the schedule for now.
