Since 1956 the Federal government has committed over 35 billion dollars to improve the capabilities of the Nation's municipal treatment facilities. Traditionally EPA has paid 75% of the capital cost of these facilities. In the future the amount of cost sharing for wastewater facilities is likely to decrease, thereby requiring municipal sources to increase their cost sharing responsibility. Such a change in funding will no doubt force more and more municipal wastewater departments to develop a 'utility' approach to financing sewerage activities. The report describes a cost analysis system designed to provide the basic data for a utility approach leading to financial self-support for municipal wastewater activities.
