A technique for mathematical programming is used to select a least-cost combination of water treatment strategies in a river basin. The model conforms to the constraints of minimizing treatment costs subject to specified quality goal standards. Such subjects as a model for a private environmental agency; cost allocation for a regional pollution treatment system; environmental resources allocation; planning for pollution control; taxation and water pollution control; and the allocation of troublesome material are discussed. Once a regional approach is being considered other treatment strategies may also be evaluated alongside treatment at polluters. (Author)
