Representative projects of TCW Economics include:
Economic Impact Analysis of Fish, Wildlife, and Recreation Resources for the Trinity River Restoration Project
TCW Economics analyzed the economic effects of Trinity River flow alternatives on ocean sport and commercial salmon fishing, and on river and reservoir recreation. Changes in economic activity, jobs, income, and recreation benefits were estimated.
Economic Analysis of Impacts on Agricultural Operators in the Tulare Basin
TCW Economics is analyzing the economic impacts of alternative approaches to managing drainage waters from agricultural lands in the Tulare Basin. Economic criteria focusing on ability to pay and regional economic impacts are being used to screen alternatives for economic feasibility and to evaluate project impacts.
Cost-Benefit Model to Evaluate Urban Forestry Best Management Practices
TCW Economics is developing economic relationships to measure the social value of changes in the physical environment from implementing urban forestry best management practices. The monetary benefits and costs of tree planting, mulching, and water capture systems on air quality, water supply, flood control, greenwaste supply, and energy consumption are being evaluated.
Assessment of Rate Impacts from the Proposed Carmel River Dam and Reservoir
TCW Economics is evaluating ratepayer effects from constructing and operating the proposed Carmel River Dam and Reservoir Project. Using engineering cost data and applying rate setting procedures, we are evaluating ratepayer effects under alternative future growth assumptions.
