Contents Notes
The national average per capita cost for collection and treatment of municipal wastewater was computed based on the 1968 Inventory of Municipal Waste Treatment Facilities in the United States and per capita cost relationships for building and operating collection and treatment facilities. All costs are given per capita served with treatment facilities using the level of treatment existing in 1968. The cost of collection is about three times as expensive as treatment. The current status of collection and treatment in the United States is discussed and estimates are made of needed additional expenditure.
