A computer simulation is employed to evaluate three alternative particulate air pollution control strategies, using St. Louis as a model region, with the following objectives: (1) quantification of cost savings of two least-cost strategies based on alternative linear programming formulation--an air pollution emissions least-cost (ELC) strategy and an ambient air quality least-cost (ALC) strategy, and comparison of these strategies with currently-used strategies, (2) evaluation of certain variables in the least-cost strategies, (3) cost impact on region of meeting increasingly stringent air quality standards, (4) comparison of marginal costs and benefits of control at the primary standard.
