A catalog has been compiled of manufactured products which may, during their normal use or disposal, results in water pollution. The catalog is in three sections, and the products are grouped in accordance with the Standard Industrial Classification (SIC). Section I summarizes the pollution potential of each listed product group. Section II provides data on typical chemical compositions for each product group and indicates the types of water-pollutional effects associated with chemical ingredient. Section III inverts Section II by providing an alphabetical listing of chemicals and the SIC codes in which they occur. Along with the catalog, a simple model has been developed to estimate rates of pollutant entry into the waterways, via various routes. A guide including examples is provided on how to use the catalog and associated models to assess potential water pollution problems arising from finished products in common use. (Author)
