This report provides an economic and financial analysis of the proposed revisions to the effluent limitation guidelines for the Steam Electric utility Industry. It considers the economic effects associated with BAT and pretreatment standards for once-through and recirculating cooling water as well as NSPS for both cooling water streams and fly ash transport water. The analysis was conducted at both the plant and national levels. Although the proposed regulations will require that the industry spend up to $80 million annually to comply and its cumulative capital expenditures will increase by $200 million over the period 1980-1995, these increases are very small relative to the baseline industry costs. The analysis concludes that the proposed regulations will not significantly add to the costs of generating electricity.
