Abstract
This annotated bibliography is a compilation of the literature on water pollution control costs. It contains nearly 2,000 selected publications, unpublished papers, and theses focusing on the time period from 1960 to 1972, although earlier naterial is added if it seems particularly relevant. The references are chosen to satisfy the needs and interests of several types of researchers. For the economist, there are books and articles on economic theory and incentive systems in water quality management. For the engineer, there is information on unit treatment processes and cost implications of their design and operation. For the operations research analyst, optimization techniques, mathematical modeling, and statistical methods are referenced as they apply to wastewater control. For the policy maker, cost function literature identifies the primary determinants of cost and their quantitative effects. (Modified author abstract)
