Abstract
This report supports the analysis of options and cutoffs considered as pretreatment standards for the industrial laundries industry. In this document, the total annualized cost of each of two regulatory options are compared to the corresponding effectiveness of that option, at the cutoffs, considered in reducing the discharge of pollutants. Section Two discusses EPA's cost-effectiveness methodology and identifies the pollutants included in the analysis. This section also presents EPA's toxic weighting factors for each pollutant and considers the removal efficiency of each option. Section Three presents the results of the cost-effectiveness analysis. In section Four, the cost-effectiveness value for the regulatory option and cutoff considered for the pretreatment standards is compared to cost-effectiveness values for other proposed and promulgated rules. Appendix A and B present the pollutant reduction and costs for all cutoffs considered under the two options that EPA considered during its decisionmaking process.
