An analysis of the economic and financial effects of the final water effluent guidelines on the iron and steel industry. Additional capital expenditures for water pollution control equipment will be $463.1 million in 1982-1985. An additional $267.0 million will be required for NSPS additions in 1986-1990. These capital requirements will probably cause the steel industry to reduce expenditures for existing capacity in the mid-1980s. This, in turn, will probably result in an approximate 0.6 percent decline in industry production, a 0.5 percent decrease in domestic market share, and a potential decline in steel industry employment of about 2,180 jobs by 1985. These impacts would be virtually eliminated by the early 1990s by the improved economic and financial conditions of the industry.
