The economic impacts of proposed effluent guidelines on selected portions (citrus, apples and potatoes) of the fruit and vegetable processing industry were assessed. The analysis included description and statistical compilations regarding the number, location and characteristics of types of firms and plants; financial profiles, investments, operating costs and returns for selected model plants; prices and pricing mechanisms; description of analytical procedures employed; evaluation of costs of proposed effluent treatment practices; and economic impacts of proposed pollution controls in terms of effects on prices, industry returns, production, employment, community economics and international trade. Limits of the analysis were stated. Specific segments of the citrus (single strength canned juice) and apple (small slices and sauce plants) processing industries will be severely impacted both by the BPT (1977) and BAT (1983) levels of control.
