The report defines a rate of investment that will close the gap for municipal and industrial waste treatment within a five year period, given the continued pertinence of today's regulatory and technological conditions. Detailed studies of the pollutional impact of the inorganic chemicals industry and of concentrated animal populations are submitted as separate sub-reports. The report considers several issues germane to the policy decisions required with the expiration of current municipal grants legislation. A number of subsidiary issues are considered, including the influence of industrial waste discharges on public investment outlays, the influence of location on unit investment, the status of broadly integrated regional waste handling systems, the incidence of recapitalization, the influence of price levels on investment, and patterns of change in the real cost of waste treatment facilities.
