The Regulatory Impact Analysis attempted to compare the costs to the benefits expected from the implementation of standards and guidelines. The cost and economic impact discussion refers to two 'Analysis of Economic Impacts' reports (EPA-453/R-97-007b) (PB98-110133) and (EPA-453/R-97-008b) (PB98-110125). A qualitative discussion of relevant benefit categories is presented. Due to lack of data regarding the benefits associated with reducing specific pollutants, only a few benefit categories were quantified.
