In developing regulations for disinfection by-products (DBPs), USEPA needs to ensure that drinking water utilities can effectively provide treatment that controls concentrations of both DBPs and microbiological organisms. USEPA's objective in establishing DBP limits is to minimize the total costs to society. Total costs are calculated as the sum of treatment costs, monitoring costs and health damages remaining after treatment. In order to develop the total social cost for a single regulation, USEPA needs to estimate: the extent to which utilities need to change from present treatment practices to other treatment practices in order to meet the regulation. The objective of the analysis described in this paper is to describe the methods used to estimate the above items.
