The report considers the question of efficiency in Federal actions towards waste water treatment, directing its attention to: The distribution of investments as compared to the distribution of polluting activities and the location of water pollution; The results of municipal and industrial waste treatment investments made over the life of the Federal construction grant program, in terms of reduction of oxygen demand and nutrients in sewage; Avoidable increase in local operating, maintenance, financing, and overhead costs of waste treatment; and The questionable strategy of making use of investment capital essentially to forestall some future needs, and at the same time permitting the persistence of existing treatment system deficiencies.
