The report gives priority lists to aid in selecting specific sources of water effluents for detailed assessment. It describes the general water prioritization model, explains its implementation, and gives a detailed example of its use. It describes hazard factors that were developed to prioritize specific sources. Various industries (source types) were rank-ordered (prioritized) on the basis of their water discharges. Solid residues were assumed to contribute to water discharges as leachates or water runoff. The prioritization index for water, termed the impact factor, is based on a ratio of actual to hazardous effluent mass. The water discharge prioritization model was applied to 262 stationary organic and inorganic sources. The source types were also divided into four subcategories (petrochemicals, textiles, pesticides, and fertilizers) and prioritized.
