A large municipal water utility district is considering three large conduits. The first involves construction of a steel pipeline at a cost of $150 million. The pumping and other operating costs are expected to be $1 million/year, increasing by 1% per year. The second involves construction of a reinforced concrete channel, at a cost of $100 million, with operating costs of $1.5 million starting at EOY 1 and increasing by $150,000 per year thereafter. Alternatively, a gravity flow canal can be constructed at a cost of $200 million. The 0&M costs for the canal are expected to be $0.75 million at EOY 1, increasing by $200,000/year. Assuming the benefits are the same for each and that each project begins operation at the same time, which conduit should be built at a discount rate of 6% if: (10 points) a.

A city-county-industry partnership has been formed to attract a professional sports team to the city. An engineer with a local consulting firm is assisting with the benefit/cost analysis. The primary options are either to construct a domed arena holding 85,000 or a conventional stadium holding 70,000. The domed arena will cost $300 million to construct and will have a useful life of 50 years. The maintenance and operations costs will be $500,000 the first year, increasing by $50,000 per year thereafter. Every 10 years, except in year 50, an expenditure of $1,000,000 will be required to remodel the interior of the dome. The conventional stadium will cost only $100 million to construct and will also have a useful life of 50 years. The cost of operations and maintenance will be $700,000 the first year increasing by $75,000 per year (higher costs due to more people needed to operate the conventional stadium). Periodic costs for repainting and resurfacing for the stadium are estimated at $250,000 every 4 years, ending at EOY 48. Revenue from the domed arena is expected to be greater than that from the conventional stadium by $400,000 the first year, increasing by $100,000/year through year 15 (due to the fact that more events can be hosted with an indoor stadium). The extra revenue from the dome is expected to remain constant at the level found at EOY 15 up to EOY 50. Assuming that the salvage value of the domed stadium is $5 million and of the conventional stadium is $3 million, determine which structure should be built. You may choose the NPV approach or conduct a B/ C analysis. The annual interest rate is 7%.

The Georgia Department of Transportation (GDOT) has adopted a policy of promoting the construction of toll roads to meet the state’s mobility needs where private investors are willing to invest in a road. Clearly, such investors will not be willing to invest unless they are guaranteed some return on their investment, that is, their initial loan will earn “interest.” The investors have established a requirement of a 10% return (or interest) on their initial investment. Given this requirement, examine the following situation. GDOT has identified a potential toll road between Atlanta and Athens. The expected cost of construction, or in other words, the initial investment required from the investors, is $85,000,000, with a repayment schedule over 25 years. The annual operations and maintenance costs, which must also be covered by the toll revenues, are expected to be $2,500,000 per year, increasing by $100,000 per year. The Governor has let it be known that the toll will be $1.00 per vehicle using this road (ignore the fact that a longer distance traveler should pay more than a shorter distance traveler). The GDOT planning folks have predicted that there will be 55,000 vehicles per day using the road on Monday through Friday (there are 260 weekdays per year). On Saturdays and Sundays, there will be 20,000 vehicles per weekend day (there are 105 weekend days per year). Given these data, will the private investors be interested in this toll road. . ..in other words, will the return on investment (or interest) be 10% or greater? Hint: you should set this problem up similar to a problem where you want to determine a toll per vehicle. In this case, you know the toll, but not the interest rate. So, you simply set up the equation and substitute in an interest rate to see if you meet the investment criterion.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
