The potential cost of commitments to water quality is explored as well as ways in which that cost might be minimized within federal and state government guidelines of improved water quality. Cost estimates of controlling industrial and municipal pollution are developed from engineering sources for a number of treatment sequences which are used as proxies for varying levels of water quality. Estimates of costs of capital facilities, operating costs, and average costs are made for the United States and Iowa. The emphasis is on the estimation of the potential burden of water quality decisions as well as exploring ways in which that burden may be minimized. (Author)
