Abstract
The article develops a framework for evaluating the costs and benefits of environmental control and preventive public health practices and asks the policy question: How do the authors achieve the best mix of protection against infectious disease and toxic chemicals in drinking water. Costs and benefits of chlorination and filtration are analyzed retrospectively, and the results of the analysis are extended to include granular activated carbon filtration.
