Data on operations and costs of manufacturing as well as wastewater treatment were obtained from 6 textile mills which employed 9,150 workers and treated approximately 5.9 billion gallons of wastewater in 1968, and on the operations of 26 municipal sewage plants which in 1967 treated the liquid wastes of 98 textile mills. Eleven of the municipalities provided cost data that were comparable with the data obtained from the industrial firms. Treatment costs per unit of wastewater were quite high for 2 firms which had very small volumes of wastewater, but in no case did treatment costs amount to as much as one percent of total manufacturing costs. Technical and institutional problems associated with treatment of industrial wastes in municipal facilities are also discussed. (Author)
