The purpose of the report is to demonstrate the feasibility and usefulness of an economic analysis of the beneficial outcomes of water quality improvements from implementing controls on multiple sources of pollution. This case study on Boston Harbor serves to (1) demonstrate the application of a variety of economic benefit estimation techniques and (2) to assess the reliability and limitations of each. It is intended as an example of how to perform benefit analysis. The pollution abatement considered in this report results from upgrading two sewage treatment plants (STPs) on Deer and Nut Islands and controlling combined sewer overflows (CSOs) in Dorchester Bay, the Neponset and Charles Rivers, Quincy Bay, and the Inner Harbor.
