This report analyzes the current Federal Construction Grant Program for funding the treatment of municipal wastewater. Four main elements of this Federal program are evaluated: the grant formula, the allotment funding process, grant-eligible reserve capacity, and industrial cost recovery. Existing legal provisions with respect to each of these program elements are shown to be deficient in terms of their ability to encourage an efficient allocation of abatement resources and to promote an equitable distribution of Federal grant funds. The report presents several options within each program element for improving the principles of Construction Grant Legislation.
