Reported is a study that has developed a conceptual approach and operational procedure for evaluating alternative thermal effluent modification programs and estimating the generating station incremental costs of achieving alternative effluent standards. The body of the report is contained in three sections. In the first, an introductory overview of the general approach and methods used in developing and applying the cost estimating procedure is provided. Next a demonstration of the procedure together with results from its application to our empirical case study situation involving a prototype 547 mw coal-fired generating unit is given. Finally a similar, although less extensive, case study demonstration for a 1000 mw prototype nuclear unit is described.
