Abstract An economic evaluation was performed of the Proposed Interim Primary Drinking Water Regulations as published in the March 14, 1975, Federal Register. The results of the study indicate that the annual costs for water monitoring for community system would be between $22 and $43 million, while the costs for water monitoring for non-community systems would be between $47 million and $92 million if the proposed regulations were adopted. A cost of between $1.1 billion and $1.8 billion would be required to build treatment facilities to remove contaminants from the nation's drinking waters. It would cost an additional $282 million per year to operate and maintain the required treatment plants. The annual per capita costs for those systems which would require treatment would range from $244 for a sysem serving 25 people and treating for heavy metal removal to $0.25 per year for systems serving over 100,000 people requiring disinfection. A constraint analysis examined the broad areas of chemicals and supplies, manpower, laboratories and engineering and construction services.
