Abstract
The booklet is about the cane sugar industry and water pollution. It is intended to help one understand how this industry--and all other industries--are affected by a law passed by Congress to reduce and eventually eliminate water pollution. There are approximately 20,000 men and women employed in the mills and refineries of the cane sugar industry--about 8,000 in mills and 12,000 in refineries. In non-technical language, this booklet explains that: The technology exists to reduce water pollution from cane sugar plants to safe levels; Applying that technology costs money--but the majority of cane sugar plants can afford to make the necessary investments to control pollution; Such pollution control investments will not unduly affect the financial condition of the plants, or the price consumers pay for the sugar.
