The purpose of this project was to determine how much wastewater and wastewater-derived material from discharges is present in the surface water supplies of U.S. cities of over 25,000 population. The study identifies 1246 municipal water supply utilities using surface water from 194 basins serving 525 cities with populations greater than 25,000. The results are tabulated to show for each utility: the number of upstream wastewater dischargers by type, estimation of cumulated wastewater discharge flow and the ratio of wastewater flow to stream or river flow. The results ranged from 142 utilities with no dischargers identified to many utilities where the wastewater constitutes a major portion of the water supply.
