Abstract
Information is provided in support of continuing the Water Pollution Control Act. The importance of water pollution control is emphasized, and a summary of advances in research, support to states and interstate agencies, and industrial cooperation is presented. The bill is designed to strengthen individual state programs and provide Federal authority in the case of interstate pollution. Water supply, recycling, and industrial and municipal pollution trends are considered, as well as development plans of watershed programs. The bill provides a basis for pollution prevention by establishing water quality standards as an engineering base for design of treatment works by municipalities.
