Abstract The report of the National Commission on Water Quality (NCWR) September 5, 1975, indicated the clean-up (from point sources) of the nation's lakes and rivers would result in an estimated $6 billion in increased economic activity annually by 1985. Improving the quality of water to the extent possible would result in a total travel cost associated with seasonal recreational (outdoor) swimming of $1,047.0 million. A methodology for assessing the economic impact of a pollution occurrence on a recreation/tourist community is presented.
