This cost effectiveness analysis supports the proposed effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the Metal Products and Machinery (MP&M) Industry. The report assesses the cost-effectiveness of three regulatory options for indirect dischargers, which discharge effluent to publicly-owned treatment works (POTWs), and direct dischargers, which discharge effluent directly to a surface water. Cost-effectiveness analysis is used in the development of effluent limitations guidelines to evaluate the incremental efficiency of different regulatory options. Cost-effectiveness is traditionally defined as the incremental annual cost (in 1981 constant dollars) per incremental toxic-weighted pound of pollutant removed.
