This report was prepared by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) to provide a response to specific public comments that were received during the public participation phase of the Eastern Columbia Plateau Sole Source Aquifer System petition review. During this phase, nine public comments were received suggesting that there were other economically feasible alternative sources of drinking water in this petitioned area. To assess the economic feasibility of suggested alternatives, separate analyses were performed. A study was undertaken to determine the base costs associated with the design and constuction of a new surface waster treatment system as well as base costs for drilling deeper drinking water wells. These base costs were then compared to the mean household income to determine the relative burden of either of the suggested alternatives on each community.
