This two volume report examines the present and future demands and costs for residential water in view of the new requirements for water quality standards under the Safe Drinking Water Act of 1974. This volume investigates consolidation in the electric power supply industry as an example of a possible method of offsetting the increased costs of water treatment that will be incurred under the new Federal regulations. The structure of the power industry is examined and the history advantages, and cost benefits of coordination are evaluated. Several alternatives to the present system are considered, including consolidation of existing systems, encouragement of competitive markets, and public ownership of generation and transmission facilities.
