EPA is proposing effluent limitations guidelines and standards for the Metal Products and Machinery (MP&M) industry. This document presents EPA's economic and environmental analyses supporting the proposed rule. The Executive Summary provides an overview of the costs and benefits of the regulation. Overall, EPA finds that the proposed rule provides significant benefits that are likely to outweigh the social costs of the rule. Moreover, the rule has modest economic impacts. The Agency is continuing to develop and refine its methodologies for estimating the benefits of improved water quality resulting from effluent guidelines, and has used new approaches in some cases in the benefits analyses presented in these reports. EPA recognizes that estimates of both costs and benefits are uncertain, and therefore conducted a number of checks on the reasonableness of the analysis results.
