Exploring Economies of Scale for Green Infrastructure Maintenance

Download (1 MB)

In 2020, Daylight and MPC explored the potential untapped economies of scale to be gained in a shared service arrangement for maintaining green stormwater infrastructure across municipalities in the Calumet region. This research supports the work of our Calumet Stormwater Collaborative partner organization, OAI, Inc., which is leading a pilot project with the goal of directly addressing the need for effective and efficient maintenance of green infrastructure while also helping to address other community needs. The report includes sample shared service agreement language and reference agreements and contracts.
