This report focuses upon factors affecting innovation in the implementation of the 1968 Michigan Clean Water Bond Issue. The Joint Legislative Committee on Water Resources Planning which sized the bond program did not consider nutrient removal or any treatment beyond secondary in its determination of the fiscal resources necessary to meet 1980 Water Pollution Control objectives. Consequently, the fiscal resources were limited from inception. The net effect of the Clean Water Bond program maintains a 1968 status quo situation. Factors resisting innovation are identified. Factors enhancing innovation are identified. An automated information storage/retrieval system for monitoring wastewater treatment facility funding is developed. Structural and process changes for future innovation are recommened. (Modified author abstract)
