A study to determine the economics of water delivery was completed in 12 selected Class A (revenues greater than $500,000/year) water utilities and is reported in The Cost of Water Supply and Water Utility Management, Vols. I and II, EPA-600/5-77-015a and 015b, November 1977. The effort provided valid data on large water systems but raised questions about the costs associated with small utilities. As a follow-up to the earlier effort, a study of 23 small water utilities was undertaken to determine the economics of their water water delivery. Data were collected from seven to nine small utilities in each of three U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Regions. This Volume (Volume I) is an in-house analysis of the data collected under Contract No. 68-03-2071 and includes a summary of selected data from the study. All utilities are analyzed in aggregate and factors affecting the cost of water supply are examined. An evaluation of the hypothetical 1980 impact of the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974 is also provided.
