Abstract
This paper analyzes two external costs often associated with port
development, cost to fisheries from marine dredge disposal and damages from
air pollution, using estimates of development and operation for a proposed
(but since cancelled) container port as a case study. For dredge disposal, a
bio=economic model was used to assess short- and long-term and indirect
(foodweb) damages to fisheries from marine disposal of clean sediments. In
the case of air pollution, estimates of annual activity levels and emission
coefficients are used to estimate incremental annual emissions of three key
pollutants (NOx, HC and CO) for tucks, trains, yard vehicles, and vessels.
these estimates allow for phasing in of strict new air pollution regulations.
For both external costs, sensitivity analyses are used to reflect uncertainty.
Estimates of shadow values in year 2002 dollars amount from $0.094per cybic
yard to %0.169per cubic yard of clean dredged material for the selected
disposal site and from $0.0584per mile (for crrent control standards)to $
0.0023per mile(after phasing in of new regulations)for air poluution from
heavy trucks.
